Start by measuring and cutting your dowels to fit your frame; my frame is 11 x 14 in and I cut my dowels to 8 in to have roughly 1 inch on each side.

Paint the dowels with your desired color. Let dry.

Next use the cardstock to cut several small rectangular pieces. I cut mine to 2 x 3 in to leave enough space for the top and bottom of the frame.

Use the cardstock as spaces to help you place your dowels evenly on the frame before gluing. Once the dowels are evenly spaced, use Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue to glue dowels in place.
