Fabric Wall Hanging Tutorial

I found the perfect piece of fabric to decorate my wall with at JoAnn Fabrics on the clearance rack.  I wanted to redo my nook with splashes of deep red.  So, I decided to make my own art.  This is how I did it....

Find that perfect piece of fabric...

Decide how big you want your frame to be.  I purchased 8 ft pieces of 1 x 0.5 wood (2.50 each) at Lowes.  I measured and cut to size.  

Next I screwed the pieces together to create....

the frame....

Next I stapled the fabric to the back of the frame.  Starting at 1 side and then the opposite side, pulling the fabric tightly as I went.  

Then I proceeded to to staple the other ends.

Next I folded over the corners and stapled them into place.

And there you have it!  Art, the perfect size...perfect colors...made by you!  For a fraction of the cost!
