    1. Photo Fabric Wall Hanging – VERY EASY

    If you’re searching for a gift for a young person in your life, this is the perfect choice! Impress them with a handmade gift that’s both trendy and personal.

    These wall hangings are extremely popular and ideal for dorm rooms, lockers, bedroom walls, and home decor!

    First, you will need to order your Photo Fabric!

    CHOICE 1: White heavy-weight polypoplin is a very nice weight of fabric, true to color and vibrant! It is just the right weight for a wall hanging and prints very nice.

    CHOICE 2: This ivory linen-look fabric is also heavyweight but adds a touch of elegance and charm! Keep in mind that this is sublimation, so white areas in your photo will show the ivory fabric underneath. This softens the photo, creating a beautiful, aesthetic piece perfect for naturally decorated spaces.

    Second, you will need to order MAGNETIC POSTER HANGER FRAME.

    Here are the frames I ordered from Amazon!

    Third, finish the edges of the photo fabric you ordered. It will be 8×10.

    You can either turn under 1/4 of an inch on the edge and seam it down, or iron it down with two-sided hem tape or serge the edge. (Make sure you cover your photo fabric with a pressing cloth so you don’t damage your photo fabric).

    When I serged the edge with my serger, I used a three-thread narrow overlock stitch and put the stretch thread in the upper looper to make it look prettier!

    Fourth, snap the top and bottom between the magnets of your magnetic poster hanger frame and you’re done!
