HELP!! Name Doily...How Do I Frame It?
Posted 20 February 2006 - 03:01 PM
I want to give the doily to her this coming Saturday at her wedding shower.
Can anybody tell me how to mount and frame the doily? Is it easy enough that I can do it myself? The doily is approximately 15 by 5 inches. What size frame would look best?
Any and all help would be appreciated!!!

If you DYI, Pick the next size up from the diminsions of your doily say a 20x10? Again, hobby lobby for a good variety of frames. you would then choose a backing board and cover with: decorative paper, fabric, etc. and with a sharp needle and sewing thread tack around the edges of the doily to the backer board. Some spray alittle adhesive on the doily as well for additional support.
I'd also suggest you dampen, lightly starch, and block with pins before attempting to frame it. It will help to keep its shape for years to come. Congrats on completing your doily!
