Instructions for No-Sew Easy Embroidery

Faux Easy Embroidery Art Step 1

1. Measure and mark the board. I measured two pieces that were 21 inches long and two pieces that were 19 5/8 inches long.

2. Cut along your marks. Pretty much any power saw will make the process super quick and easy.

But if you don’t have a power saw, don’t worry! Since the boards are so thin, it’s still quick with a hand saw. Use a miter box to help get straight cuts. 

3. Cut four more pieces that are about one inch long.

4. Sand away any rough edges. You’re going to cover the front and outside edges with the fabric later on, so you don’t need to go overboard with the smoothing.

5. Screw the boards together to make a square frame using small screws and a drill. 

The two longer pieces will be the top and bottom. The two shorter pieces will be sandwiched between them. 

Tip: Be careful not to over-tighten the screws, or you could split the wood.

6. Attach a one-inch piece of wood into each corner with a small nail to stabilize the frame.

7. Center the frame over the fabric, and stretch it tight from top to bottom. 

8. Staple it at the center of the top and bottom.

9. Use pinking shears (to reduce fraying) or scissors to cut off the corners around 3/4 inch away from the frame. 

This will help reduce bulk when you warp the corners.

10. Pull the fabric tight, and staple around the rest of the frame, alternating sides as you staple. 

11. When you get to the corners, fold and tuck the fabric a bit like a bed sheet. Staple over the corners a couple times to help hold down the thick fabric.

12. Use a Cricut or Silhouette machine to cut out a cute phrase, and iron it along the bottom of the design.
