Adorn your walls with fabric

I recently learned how to stretch fabric over a canvas frame to make a beautiful and inexpensive wall hanging. I needed some splashes of color in one of our rooms. I think the hardest part was figuring out how to say "staple gun" in Japanese!


What a fabulous way to satisfy the urge to see beautiful fabric around you. This took only a half yard each of fabric from the Far Far Away collection by Heather Ross. I got the remnants on sale at a fabric shop.

I'm loving pink and green these days. 

I was first inspired by seeing a photo on this post in Sasikirana Handmade – I love looking at the colors in this blog! And then I found a great tutorial here, not that you really need a tutorial. You just need to know how to use a staple gun.

Here's another lovely post on using fabric in an embroidery hoop – I'll have to try that for some of my smaller remnants.

It just makes me so happy to see splashes of color here and there in my home!

    Thanks, I’m going to try this! I hung up a larger piece of fabric using quilt hangers, but I like the neat edges of the frames. Such a great idea!
