Bare, boring walls? Redecorating your home on a budget? Why not have a go at these DIY wall art canvases. Recycle any old fabric you have or buy it at any craft store. Recover an old canvas or buy one online or at a large craft store, but if you're feeling really creative you can make your own.
Use fabrics that compliment the colour scheme. Why not try some oriental or floral patters to create some amazing artwork or include quotes, photos or monograms to make them more personal. Here are some images to give you some ideas:
They are so cheap and easy to make, all you need is:
- Stapler, Staple gun, or super glue
- Canvas or frame
1) Measure the height and width or your canvas/ frame. Use these measurements to cut your piece of fabric, adding about 2-3 inches to each side.
2) Place your piece of fabric face down onto a flat surface and place your canvas on top.
3) Wrap you canvas in the fabric by folding the excess fabric onto the back and staple or glue to secure. Check the front before gluing to make sure fabric is smooth and straight.
