We think this cute wall art will be the perfect at home craft activity for the next rainy day. Use any of your favourite tea towel designs to create artwork for your own wall or a unique gift for someone special.
See below for the full instructions
Things you need:
- Make Me Iconic tea towel
- Staple gun & staples
- Material scissors
- Blank canvas 46 x 61cm (18 x 24 inch)
- Hammer (if a staple doesn't go in all the way you can hammer it in)
Step 1 - Unpick all the 4 edges of your tea towel
Step 2 - Iron the back of the tea towel so there are no creases.
Step 3 - Lay the tea towel on a large hard clean surface and place the framed canvas on top in the middle. Make sure you have enough excess fabric to pullover each side.
Step 4 - Go round the canvas clockwise and staple in the middle of each side pulling tight as you go. Once all four sides have one staple in them, go round again and place a staple about every 5 to 8cm. This is the time when you pull really hard to make sure there is no sagging sections.
Step 5 - The last step is the trickiest of the whole project. You want to pull one corner of the material flat, then you fold a 45 degree angle in the fabric and then take all the excess material and lay it over the top and staple down. (This will create a neat flat fold like a hospital corner on a bed) It may help to watch a quick video on Youtube so you can see this step in action.
And now you are ready to hang you Tea Towel art work! We used Command adhesive large picture hanging strips to hang the canvas on the wall.
