  1. 1

    Buy an acrylic box frame big enough to display the image on the T-shirt.

  2. 2

    Take the back out of the frame. Some frames have side pieces attached to the back of the frame. If yours does not, cut a cardboard box to fit the frame with the sides.

  3. 3

    Stretch the T-shirt over the back of the frame or the box you cut. Center the T-shirt's image in the middle of the frame. Mark the shirt around the sides. Allow a 2-inch overhang around the edges.

  4. 4

    Cut the T-shirt around the marks you made.

  5. 5

    Wrap the shirt around the back and tape it down. The T-shirt needs to be pulled as tightly as possible

  6. 6

    Slide the back into the frame. Attach the frame to the back with the clips on the frame.

  7. 7

    Hammer a nail into the wall where you want to place the frame. Hang the frame on the wall.
