Fabric DIY Wall Art is one of the easiest and quickest ways to add color or pattern to a room. You can use fabric, sheets, towels, whatever has a color or a pattern you love. I recently shared our family room last week with DIY Wall Art that I made last summer and realized after a few emails wondering where I bought the wall art, I never showed you how I made them. I did share them last summer on our mantel but never shared the tutorial.
Here is a photo of the yellow and white fabric DIY wall art from last weeks post that has generated an explosion in my inbox! ha
Yesterday I made another set of fabric covered dump truck canvas pieces. Yes, all I did was use fabric from previous projects and stapled it over the dump truck art work. When my son was younger, he was obsessed with dump trucks so because I have a small fortune invested in dump truck art work, I am trying to reuse them throughout the house. Here is a close up of the dump truck canvas art work covered in yellow and white fabric. I decided to hot glue the wooden picture frame on one of the pieces to help coordinate the burlap curtains with the art work.
First take your canvas, poster board, or old photo you would like to recycle and lay it face down on top of your fabric.
Cut your fabric leaving 2 inches on either side.
Viola, you have a fun piece of DIY Wall Art at a minimal expense. I decided to swap out the yellow and white fabric wall art and display my new wall art featuring the fabric from HGTV’s new summer line. I had this fun pink and orange themed fabric left over from my DIY pillow tutorial so I decided to swap out the blue chair and add the rocker with the coordinating pillow. A new look by shopping my house.
Here is a close up of the dump truck sporting it’s new look.
How about placing your DIY Wall Art on a trunk or bench?
I love the idea of leaning Wall Art against a surface.
Sometimes when I do things around our house, at the time, they have no purpose. What I mean is, many times I get bored with how something looks or it finally dawns on me that, that space is ugly. ha. You know when you look at something for so long, it becomes a permanent fixture and before you know it, months go by. Sometimes years. Call it my anxiety or whatever, but I am constantly switching out home decor and reusing it in another space. So what do you think? Are you ready to make your own Fabric DIY Wall Art?
