Pleat and Trim Excess Fabric

To clean up the corners, fold the fabric around the corners to the bottom and top edges and staple. Cut out excess fabric, leaving just enough to cover the wood, and continue stapling the bottom and top edges to the corners. Carefully remove excess fabric with a utility knife even with the back edge of the door.

Draw Grid for Triangles

Use the square, yardstick and chalk to measure and draw guidelines for the triangles on the door.

Attach Triangles

Align the edges of the triangles with the guidelines from the last step and staple to keep them in place. Here, we lined up the points of each accent color in the center of each square.

Tip:Use a minimal number of staples (approximately 6 per triangle) and keep them as close to the edge of the triangles as possible so the decorative tacks easily cover them.
