Create your own canvas DIY wall art

wooden frame

My mother is an artist and left me a couple of wooden canvas frames. These can be purchased at any art store.

I decided upon a new project because have an “entertainment” center that I couldn’t find the proper place for in my TV family room. It’s a great big open room but the way it is shaped didn’t make it easy to set the TV up in a comfortable viewing place. We decided to set the center up in the corner of the room to bring the TV closer to our couches. Only because of the size of the center, the TV stuck out about 5 feet from the corner behind it. It didn’t look right so we decided to make a screen to go behind the TV to give the illusion of a wall.

Starting with a wooden canvas frame, measure the length of fabric you would need allowing for excess to wrap around and secure to the back.

As you can see here I cut it really close!!!!! Using a staple gun, pull the fabric tight and staple all the way around the frame.

Voila! We using round hooks screwed to the ceiling, string, and a measuring tape to hang the DIY wall art to the ceiling. This was abstract upholstery fabric we liked from Joanns fabric store.

I like the idea of using fabric as a quick and easy way to decorate a room. Of course if you are artistic enough, making your own canvas art would be amazing too!

Here is a great link from Better Home and Gardens I came across too! http://www.bhg.com/decorating/do-it-yourself/wall-art/14-canvas-wall-art-projects/
