So, I've been completely loving all the fabric-based wall art I've been seeing lately.
I've been working on my girls' blue-and-pink shared room, and this is my version of some framed fabric wall art.
Some of the fabric is leftover from their quilts.
Some of the fabric is leftover from their rag rug.
And some of the fabric is whatever they had a Walmart! Super lame, I know and I am certain I could find something better at an actual fabric store, but the project needed to get done (did I mention I'm due to have a baby in T-minus 6 days?), and I was at Walmart, and I figured I might as well get it completed while I could. If I get ambitious, I plan on updating some of the fabrics at a later time. IF I get ambitious. :)
The project was really easy to complete.
I had the leftover white frames from my daughter's framed tree mural I did in her room a few houses ago (I knew they would come in handy again someday!).
I didn't, however, have any backing for any of them, so what I did was cut cardboard boxes to fit the insides of all the frames. Super annoying actually. I watched several episodes of Downton Abbey while sawing through cardboard.
Then, I used a regular ol' stapler to staple the fabric around the cardboard. Then I inserted the wrapped cardboard into the frames.
To find the layout I wanted, I laid them all out on the floor and moved them around until I was satisfied with the arrangement. Then I laid out some butcher paper (2 long strips taped together to make it wide enough) underneath and traced the frames on top of the paper. The paper was then transferred up to their bedroom and taped to the wall where I wanted the frames to go. I went ahead and hammered nails through the paper onto the wall, took the paper down, hung the frames up, and voila, done deal. :)
For the time being, I think their room is complete! I had a few other ideas of cute things to do, buuttt, due to the aforementioned approaching birth of little girl #3, the room is essentially complete! :) Yea!
If I do ever get around to doing those other cute ideas, then I'll have to post a "completed" room profile. :)
