How to make a nice altar frontal...



Just nail a wood frame together; then staple or nail a canvas front to it; then staple or nail the silk over that; then use a fabric glue gun to apply the trim. Make one and then see how it looks (and consider one in black, too!).

Fr Jay
you can find beautiful liturgical damasks through churchlinens.com
they come from mperkins in England. All liturgical colors

I would do the frontal the old fashioned way as I wouldn't think you could count on the glue holding up over time and movement.
storage would be a huge issue

This would be fine for something quick that wasn't meant to last
