DIY Designing: Fabric Art

My hallway was looking a little bland. Not wanting to spend a lot of money, I decided to create my own fabric art. It takes just a few minutes and is easy to customize -- just mix and match your favorite fabric with inexpensive frames.

Gather materials. For three 8x10 pieces of art you will need about one yard of fabric, a hot glue gun, scissors, and three frames.

Trim the fabric so that you have a one-inch border around the cardboard insert that comes in a new frame.

Glue the fabric onto the cardboard. Make sure to keep the fabric taught as you work your way around. We don't want any funny folds!

Continue gluing and folding until all four sides are done.

If you heeded my warning and kept the fabric tight as you worked your way around, you should end up with a crisp and wrinkle-free fabric board.

Frame the fabric board as you would a picture. Repeat process as many times as you want.

Hang on the wall and enjoy!
