DIY Wall Art with Framed Fabric

Create a huge piece of wall art using fabric! Talk about big impact with a little bit of money.

I'm bringing Spring decor around the house and this time it was the turn for the wall space in my office. For Christmas I created a tree sign -you can see it HERE.  All throughout January that space was empty and I kept on thinking what to display there.

Well, I was organizing some pieces of fabric that I had in my bedroom when this piece popped up:

I bought the fabric at Ikea last year. Only one yard, thinking on using it for an art project. I don't remember why I didn't use it before, maybe laziness? who knows.

Well, good thing. It was the perfect fit for the wall in the office. But, what I like the most about this project is that you can update it later on with another piece of fabric!

The following are the complete details to replicate the one I made, but remember you can adjust and make it your own.

The materials & tools:

1. BUILD THE FRAME

Build the main frame out of 1 x 2 pine material. The one I built was 56" x 34.5"
drilling holes and driving screws on wooden frame

Do pre-drills before driving the 2" screws to prevent the wood from splitting.

You can use pocket hole joinery. Most of the time I do use pocket holes, but this time I had my drill at hand so I went with it.

2. ADD THE FABRIC

How to make a fabric wall art project

Place your piece of fabric face down on a large surface or floor. Bring the frame on top.
Center the design and drive one staple on the center of each side, pulling the fabric taut while you add the staples.
Pull the frame up and check that the design is centered.
If so, continue driving staples, pulling the fabric nicely in place. One staple on one side then go to the opposite side.

Note: I didn't drive too many staples because my plan is to change the fabric later on when I get tired of this design.

This is how the frame looked at this point. You can stop here if your fabric is long enough to go around to the back of the frame.

3. ADD A DECORATIVE FRAME - (Optional)
I went ahead an added an extra frame to give it more definition. Those wooden pieces are half inch thick.
They were cut to size and attached to the main frame with brad nails. The long pieces were attached with only three nails, the shorter one with only two nails. The reason was the same, easy way to disassemble it to change the fabric later on.

Note: I think you can substitute the brad nails for hot glue. This frame is mostly for visual appeal.
And this is how it looks with the added frame. I love it! 💙

The description of this fabric on the Ikea web site:

"The harmonious pattern on this fabric resembles a stormy sea with sunshine reflecting on the water’s surface." 

I used it on the vertical, no waves for me, it kinda makes me think of roots ready to sprout out this Spring.  :D
