Framing Needlepoint Staple Method
One of the most expensive and popular ways to finish needlepoint is to have it framed. You have many options. You might choose a deep or shallow frame, wood or metal. There are countless styles available. To spare yourself cost and trouble, you can plan ahead and purchase a premade frame and create a project to fit your purchase. Frames can be pre-fabricated, custom-made or made from pairs of molding strips.
The following items and materials are needed:
To miter the corners, first pull the point towards the center of the needlepoint and staple it. Then pull one side toward the middle again secure with a staple. Repeat on the other side of corner. Do this on all corners. Trim any bulk. Do not be afraid to trim-your project will not come loose at this point. Bulk only detracts from the final appearance.
