Canvas gallery wraps can be creating using simple techniques. All that is needed is a wooden frame, staplers, canvas pliers, pencil, scissors and canvas print. Designing gallery wraps is simple with the following steps. Just lay your canvas on the frame facing upward. Now take a pencil and mark the position where the frame intersects. Now keep the prints facing down making the frame visible. Now push the frame up the marks. Now track it using the stapler but don’t completely press to the edges as it should just hold it tight while stretching to the opposite side.
Using canvas pliers pull from edge to edge and staple completely. For evenness, start from the center and move across the frame. Once done move to the shorter side and staple it and then repeat the same with all the edges. For clean corners fold one each corner before stapling. Now with the scissors cut off the extra canvas. Repeat the process for all sides. Stretch the canvas using pliers and pin the corners. Now you canvas gallery wraps is ready for display.
