Default Hanging small rugs

Hi all,

I was looking in Peter Stone's "Oriental Rug Repair" in the section on displaying rugs, and the idea of building a frame and sewing the rug to it interests me.

Has anybody done this with a smaller rug? 3 x 5 or thereabouts?

Alternatively, what other methods do you like? I have three rugs with sewn sleeves that I thread a rod through, but unless I use a really beefy rod or dowel, the rug can sag and not lay flat.

Thanks in advance for your ideas.
