Hello? Hello? Do you remember me? I’m the sister who disappeared for awhile from the picket fence and I’ve missed you all so much! I’ll be back soon with a much longer post where I will share with you what has been happening in my life lately and why you haven’t heard much from me lately but until then it’s time for a little Friday Flashback!
I don’t know about you but I always think I’m going to get SO much done in the summer. It’s like I experience short-term memory loss because all I have to do is look back at previous summers to realize that there really aren’t as many lazy days as we think there will be. Between moving to a new house (can’t wait to show it to you guys soon!) and a lot of other life stuff, I just simply haven’t had the time to do a lot of creating. So, I thought it would be fun to take a look back at one of my favorite projects.
Today I’m showing you (again) how to make framed fabric wall art for inexpensive and custom art!
I saw these super cute spoon themed 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 our new house and I’m really looking forward to meeting you here more and more. Life has a way of twisting and turning and so often it feels like we are just along for the ride. But, knowing that my At the Picket Fence community is always here is such a blessing and one that I don’t take for granted!
I’ll meet you back here soon and I hope you have a wonderful weekend,
