big art costs big money, so i thought what solution can i make for this. On sites like amazon you can find cool finky shower curtains with all sorts of prints from 10$. Be sure you get a fabric on not a plastic one

You will also need
nail gun and/or drill and screws
6 1x2x6 s
Cut 1x2 s to desired lenth depending on how much of the pattern you want to show. Heres they key to this, instead of making 1 frame make 2 frames equal size. I used nail gun to set and screws to hold it fast
heres the tricky part, ( way easier with 2 people)staple the curtain to one frame, then up the second frame at a small angle, hold it, pull the curtain taught and staple the other side. Flip it over and the frame will point up a small amount like a pyramid. Mash the frame flat stretching the curtain super tight like a professional canvas. Now with it mashed down screw both frames together. then staple top and bottom over.
Cut offf all excess fabric on back and flip over. Curtain should be super taunt. Now hang and enjoy. My 5'x5' art cost me $60 total heck of a savings. have fun!
