A PVC banner frame is a basic stand that allows banners to stand alone. The banner frame is made to fit any banner. Reuse the frame over and over again. It takes less than one hour to make the PVC banner frame and it lasts for years.
Things You'll Need
- Measuring tape
- 3/4-inch PVC pipe
- 8 3/4-inch "T" connectors
- 2 3/4-inch elbow joints
Measure the banner. Add 1/2 inch to each dimension of the banner. This leaves space to attach the banner to the frame.
Cut the PVC pipe to the banner's dimensions. Cut two extra pipes 2-feet long. Cut eight 1-foot pipes.
Put 4 "T" connectors in the center of four 1-foot pipes. The empty connector needs to face the side of the pipe.
Slide a 1-foot pipe into each empty connector. Connect 2 of the poles with a "T" connector. Repeat for the remaining poles. The "T" connector needs to face upwards.
Place the 2-foot poles into the upwards connectors and attach the "T" connectors on the top of the poles.
Insert one of the pipes cut to the banner's length into the connector holes on the sides of the poles.
Put the poles cut to the banner's width in the top holes. Place elbow joints on top of the poles.
Insert the remaining length of pipe into the holes.
Glue the connectors to the pipes to hold the frame together. Hang the banner on the frame.
Tips & Warnings
- If the frame is in a windy area, place heavy objects like bricks on the bottom of the stand to hold it down.
