- 7It is important to create a dust cover for the back of the frame for protection. Eugenia uses double-sided tape and an extra map, measured to size.
- 8Lastly, it’s time to make the hanging wire. Measure about 1/3 of the way down the back, then use an awl and hammer to make a small hole in the wood for a screw. Using a Phillips-head screwdriver, attach a D-ring to either side and put the wire through.
