Today I’m showing you how to make framed fabric wall art for inexpensive and custom art!
It seems like it’s been an eternity. No really…an eternity, okay well actually it’s been 393 long days. 393 days of no house projects, crafts or decorating. 393 days of passing seasons and cute new product lines and I watched them all slowly pass. Do you know how hard it is for a DIYer to sit twiddling her creative thumbs while she watches all of her amazing and talented friends crafting, and remodeling and designing…it’s torture I tell ya!
So, I’m so excited to get to work in my new house doing what I love to do best…with shopping coming in at a close second!
It’s scary having so many stores available to me…literally two of everything including Target! Have you SEEN Target’s Threshold lines?! I’m in LURVE!!
I saw these super cute Threshold Spoon Kitchen Towels and knew I had to have them, but once I got them home I just couldn’t bring myself to dry my dishes with them…they deserved more of a place of honor than that. A place like my wall!
If you’ve ever purchased art, you know how expensive it can be! But creating your own framed fabric wall art is an easy, inexpensive and custom solution! It’s a fun and quick way to add color to any space, and if you are trying to brighten up a neutral area a great way to add pop to plain walls.
Here’s how to make frame fabric wall art with any fabric you choose…even kitchen towels!
Fabric of choice
Poster frames (purchased at WalMart $8.99 each)
Iron and Ironing Board
Spray paint in color of choice
Krylon Easy-Tack Repositionable Adhesive Spray
Directions For Framed Fabric Wall Art:
Carefully remove cardboard backing and acrylic “glass” from frames. Spray several light coats of paint onto frames, being sure to get all of the inside edges of frame. Carefully iron fabric so there are no creases or wrinkles in fabric. Lightly spray adhesive spray on cardboard backing and lay fabric in the middle smoothing out all wrinkles from the center out. Wrap excess fabric around edges and cut off any excess. Place acrylic and fabric covered cardboard back into frame. Hang where desired!
I have so many fun ideas in the works for the new house…are you as excited as I am!?
