Fabric Wall Art

I love when I can decorate inexpensively.

I had lots of leftover fabric from my Dolly's quilt, and thought that it would be perfect to use some on the walls to tie it all in together!

This is nothing new. It's quite simple in fact.
1. Buy inexpensive canvases - I bought mine at Michael's when they were half price!
2. Pick your fabrics, if you're lucky like me, you'll have extra scraps from something else used in the room.
3. (optional) embroider or personalize the fabrics. I love any excuse I can come up with the personalize things!
4. Iron fabric well...I thought mine was irone could, and I still see creases!
5. Pull tight over the canvas and staple on the back


So easy, so fun, and makes a great statement!

  6. That is really cute. If you look at my blog today I've got a tutorial to make these. I tried to put my fabric straight onto the hard surface of my foam board and discovered just like you that even though I had ironed it very well, you could still see creases. That is why I put a layer of batting inbeween the fabric and the board. It eliminated my creases.
    Thank you for sharing.

  7. In the past I've always used batting, but this was smaller and I wanted a smoother look, so I skipped, oops! Lesson learned :)
