new wall art

I pretty much love putting fabric on my walls.  Any excuse to use my favorite fabrics is usually okay with me.  But this was too easy.  Almost too easy to call it a craft.  But I love the way they turned out.  Here's how:


Choose the most awesome fabric that you totally love.  Cover an inexpensive canvas.  Pull out the ever handy staple gun.  Secure on the back.  Duh.  Too easy.

I secured a few pics of the flint hills to the canvas with plain silver thumbtacks.  I may make another one of these to use as an inspiration board next.  God knows, it will likely take another 5 minutes out of my day.  And as summer rolls along, I'm all about fast crafting.  Hope you all have been able to get a few fast projects done as well!

I am so stealing this great idea! My office really needs some art and an inspiration board would be perfect. Only...it is always such a big danger when I go to the fabric store. :)

perfect timing...what a great idea~ I never even thought about using a canvas board. I was just thinking how both my kids need their own boards. thanks for the idea~
