My son wanted a signed jersey and a small t-shirt up on the wall for his soccer themed bedroom, and I could not find any cute display cases online. So I grabbed two thrifted art pieces, and I framed both. There are two different options, one is with a framed canvass, another uses an alternative with cardboard. Here’s what I did to create a framed jersey/t-shirt:

  1. Remove the canvass from the frame

I thrifted a framed canvass, and started to remove it using these jewelry pliers.

2. Wrap the Jersey/T-Shirt around it

Wrap the jersey/shirt around the canvass super tight. Obviously you want to find a canvass that’s large enough, and if you can’t, resort to my alternative option below.

3. Secure the jersey with tape

I could’ve stapled it, or done something a bit more permanent, but I didn’t want to destroy the jersey. Instead, I used this carpet tape I had. It’s very strong, and double sided. I obviously only used one side. Once the jersey was taped, I secured the canvass back into the frame. (I also used tape for this step, but if you have existing hardware that frames the canvass, you can do that as well). And it turned out so great!

Alternative option if you don’t have a canvass

If you don’t have a canvass, or if your canvass isn’t big enough, you can just as easily make a framed jersey/T-shirt using cardboard from an old box. I did the exact same thing with a smaller shirt, but instead of wrapping it around a canvass, I wrapped it around a piece of cardboard I cut up.

I used this utility knife and all I did was trace around the frame to get it the same size.
