I finally tried framing a weave! This has been on my list for a while and I had the perfect little weave to frame. It is a weave that I made as an experiment and it didn’t work for what I had intended, but it was so cute that I wanted to keep it. The downside was it’s pretty fragile since I left a lot of open warp, so letting it hang on a wall wasn’t too good of an option. Onto framing!
I first laid my weave on the mat for the frame and positioned it where I liked then I trimmed my weave’s warp fringe to fit the frame and proceeded to attach it to the mat board. For the steps on how to frame a weave, I followed this tutorial from A Pretty Fix. The tutorial is really easy to follow and you glue the weave to the mat board, which means my fragile weave won’t be moving around and possibly unweave itself over time. The only difference between the tutorial and what I did is that I used a shadow box and in Jelica’s tutorial she used a frame with no glass. Either way makes a really nice framed weave. I have added unframed weaves to my own wall gallery of pictures and I like how they add texture to all the flat pictures, but I also like the look of a framed weave. With a framed weave you still get the texture, but the frame ties it in with the pictures better. It might also be fun to mix a framed weave and an unframed weave on a gallery wall along with photos. And of course, a framed weave would work really well on a desk or shelf.
