Quick Fix

I don't need frames on canvases that I hang on the wall but the staples were bothering me.

I bought ribbon that was the same width as the edge of the canvas in a color that was in the painting.

Using my hot glue gun I glued the ribbon to the edges. I just did dots every 2 inches or so. If I'd like to take it off in the future it won't be a mess.

When I got back to the beginning I cut an inch or so overlap.

I folded it over and glued it down.

Time to hang it back on the wall.

The painting was a gift from my crafting chum Charlene from over at the Monkeyhouse. You can see her other paintings at:
