Step 2

Take the back out of the frame. Some frames have side pieces attached to the back of the frame. If yours does not, cut a cardboard box to fit the frame with the sides.

Step 3

Stretch the T-shirt over the back of the frame or the box you cut. Center the T-shirt's image in the middle of the frame. Mark the shirt around the sides. Allow a 2-inch overhang around the edges.


Step 4

Cut the T-shirt around the marks you made.

Step 5

Wrap the shirt around the back and tape it down. The T-shirt needs to be pulled as tightly as possible

Step 6

Slide the back into the frame. Attach the frame to the back with the clips on the frame.

Step 7

Hammer a nail into the wall where you want to place the frame. Hang the frame on the wall.
