STEP ONE Turn the frame over so you can work on the back of the frame. Us­ing the elec­tric drill, par­tially in­sert one screw in a cor­ner – leave it “proud” or stick­ing out a bit so you can at­tach the twine to it. Re­peat so there are three screws down each side of the frame, two across the bot­tom and one in the mid­dle at the top.

STEP TWO Tie a knot at one end of your twine, leav­ing a small loop. Place this loop over a screw in one cor­ner, then wrap the twine around the screw in the di­ag­o­nally op­po­site cor­ner.

STEP THREE Con­tinue to zigzag the twine across and along the frame, wrap­ping it se­curely around the screws, to cre­ate a beau­ti­ful pat­tern of twine. STEP FOUR Turn the frame back over. Use the wooden pegs to at­tach your favourite photos to the twine.
