Making frames is hugely rewarding and they can be used in many ways, including:
- framing art on the ground
- framing a view in the distance framing someone’s face
- dream catchers or woven art
- quadrant frames to study vegetation…….. the list is endless!
Lay two sticks on the ground.
Lay the other two perpendicular to them, creating the basic frame shape, so you can see how it needs to be tied together.
Repeat with the other 2 sticks.
Now you have 2 corner pieces.
Lay your two corner pieces out together to double-check they are lining up and lying correctly.
Then tie the final two corners.

Remember frames don’t always need to be square – triangles work well – make sure to lay your frame out and check it to make sure the angles will work.
