How To: Make a Felt Wine Rack from a Mailing Tube
Kate and I seem to have the same problem – extreme procrastination when it comes to framing artwork… And by extreme, I mean upwards of a decade, like so long, the print seems tirelessly outdate.
But here’s a bit of motivation – once you actually get the art on the wall, you’re can make something sweet out of the mailing tube. Like, perhaps enlist the help of some bold duct tape and felt, and create a wine rack you’ll be proud to leave out to display, even if your vintage is more supermarket than sommelier.
“I wanted to combine a raw material with a neon color, but i must admit i was skeptical about the look of bare cardboard, felt and neon duct tape… The modern, industrial look is actually quite a nice departure from the fancy (and stuffy) nature of most traditional wood wine racks. if this look isn’t your thing, you can cover the entire frame of this piece with felt or any kind of fabric. the mailing tube is quite sturdy and this can be sized up or down. i encourage you to play around with different styles; after all, the rack cost less to make than one of the bottles of wine it holds (and i buy cheap wine). have fun!!”
