- 16x20 canvases [slightly stretched over wood frames - just the cheap kind]
- a hammer
- picture hanging brackets
- tape measure
- heavy duty staple gun
- extra staples
- tea towels [mine were from king arthur, but target has a ridic cute assortment]
the towel should stretch slightly, so folds and creases flatten out. staple the long sides last, but don't pull too tight as it may warp the frame.
this also works for those fancy pants pieces of wrapping paper you see in expensive stationary stores or "papieries" as they call themselves. for those however, i used 18x24 frames, which were eeeever so slightly too small. i wrapped the corners just like a christmas present and creased the folds.
