Fabric Wall Art

I was looking for an inexpensive piece of art to fill the space beneath the little window in the bathroom.

I already had the frame! That print was part of my baby boy’s nursery! It’s been quite a long time since I used it! He is now 9 years old! Time flies! Well, it is now time to reuse it!


This time, instead of using a print, I got these two pieces of fabric at the fabric store.  Brown Burlap 1 yd. / $3 and the orange print (Trop Faylinn Terrace Mandarin) 0.375 yd. for $5.


Using another lightweight poster that I also have inside that frame, I cut the burlap fabric to size.


I was ready to begin using spray adhesive to attach the burlap to the poster but the whiteness of the poster came through the burlap fabric and it didn’t look ok.  So first I had to attach pieces of brown construction paper onto the poster.


The adhesive was applyed to the burlap fabric to attached it to the poster.

And then it was trimmed all around.
           


I used a letter size construction paper as my guide to cut around the orange print, leaving a 1/2” seam all around.


Ironing the folds to the back and trimming the excess fabric from the corners.


But while looking through my scrap pieces of fabric I found a lovely blue print that I thought would work perfectly with the other elements in the bathroom.  For that blue fabric I just cut all around trying to keep a straight line, following the pattern.

I then applied the spray adhesive on it and attached it to the burlap mat I've already done.


I did the same thing for the orange print.


Put it inside the frame…

and here all finish!


And onto the bathroom wall goes my "masterpice"!

Cristina, you did a great job. The nice thing is you can adapt the process anywhere you want to change things up or think needs a jolt of color.
