I wanted to make this for ages, but I just couldn't find the time and the inspiration until now. And this is what I made yesterday:



I took an old Styrofoam board


covered it with fleece (I used spray glue)


Then I choose the fabric (an old bedding). Here's a closeup:


I covered the board with the fabric and to fix it on the backside I simply used tape.
Then I attached the ribbon and fixed it with silver nails.

I recently bought a lovely little painting from a seller on Etsy. She used a foam board as protection for the painting. I put it in my junk cupboard not knowing what to do with it but certainly not wanting to throw it out.

Thanks so much for your post! I now know what I will be doing with that piece of foam board.

Please keep your pics up if possible. I'll bookmark this page. I'm slow at getting things done. Thanks again!

Wow that is really nice and very professional looking!  What kind of nails did you use?  Did you have any trouble making them stay in and tight?  I really want to make one of these now!

Hm, that's a good question.. I have no idea what they are called in English... It's those kind of nails witch are used to fix the fabric cover of old armchairs. You know, that kind of chair that Grannies use to sit in next to the fire and knit.  Wink The aren't very long and have a flat head.
Hope, that helps!

I guess they are called upholstery nails.
