    hanging a tea towel as a picture 23rd Feb 11 at 5:25 PM
    Hi

    Might seem a strange idea, but Ive seen a tea towel that I would really like to hang on our kitchen wall as a picture, rather than use it as... well, a tea towel hanging off a hook.

    Does anyone have any creative ideas how I can do this, and possibly quite cheaply too. I could probably just buy a frame and hang it up that way, but it would have to be quite a large frame (tea towel is 52 x 72cm), and that could be quite pricey.

    Anyone have any bright ideas?

    Clip frame -



    Very cheap - you can get them from places like Wilkinsons for less than a tenner.

    Or hem both ends, insert lengths of dowel and hang on hooks.

    Nearly 2 years later and you've directed me to exactly what I'm looking for, for the same purpose - thanks!

    The Op asked the question in Feb 2011 so i think she may have hung it up by now.

    Funny you should bring this up but my mother had a teatowel of the "Boy in Red Velvet" in 1967 and she decided to have it framed professionally. It was done in a lovely gold moulding. Somehow or other it finished up in my possession and although it's not hung at the moment I still have it in its original condition.

    Here's the original artwork http://pix.com.ua/en/art/painting/portraits/498037-see.html
