I purchased pine molding and cut it to size. Then I cut strips of black felt cloth and used craft glue to fix the felt to the inside of one side of the pine molding. I then sandwiched two pieces of pine molding together and clamped them.

The finished fixtures are perfect. To hang the pieces in the gallery, I used clear thumbtacks and more fishing line. The silks appear to be floating on the wall, and they look beautiful!
I had a wonderful day yesterday hanging my very first art show. It means the world to me that Christy Fricks, the owner of Floorspace, and my good friend, believes in me enough to ask me to be the first artist to exhibit work in her space.
