Large artwork looks great on an easel — so do flat screen televisions and groups of smaller artwork. But the easel itself isn't exactly inexpensive. They can cost several hundred dollars and if you're like me you say, "Meh, a nail costs 3 cents, I'll just hang it on the wall instead." Well now you can make your own easel at a fraction of the cost thanks to the lovely Ana White. This easel set up only requires a few supplies from the hardware store. The list is nothing more than some furring strips, some eye hooks and a few hinges. That's it. Really, this one's simple folks.
The idea is a great one for your own home or even to make as a gift for the upcoming holidays. Maybe it can accompany your own handmade artwork or given just as it is. It's a great project that makes a big impact in a room and it can be yours for just an hour or two of your time! Get the full tutorial over at Ana White.
