Default hanging a tea towel as a picture

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?

How about something like this http://shop.ebay.co.uk/i.html?_nkw=p....c0.m270.l1313

They come in different sizes

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.

The Op asked the question in Feb 2011 so i think she may have hung it up by now.
Now that i'm what you could describe as an older person i've stopped eating health foods.
I need all the preservatives i can get.

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/po...98037-see.html
