These metal adjustable stretchers were used back when ladies knitted wool socks and dryed them without shrinkage. I saw them as holiday door decor or mantel pieces of art. I used an old hand embroidery wool quilt.
Mark inside the frame for a cardboard cutout, hotglue edges and glue paper sack to finish back. Handtack in a few spots to the frame.
Hotglue a doily, long ribbon and jute bow with flower. I also added an old key.
