What I love most about creating your own wall art is the ability to play around and see what comes out. It’s an entirely original and personal creation you can hang with pride. I decided to mount mine on a canvas frame, but you can put it in a picture frame or just hang it as is. I chose to create something, which for me, was soothing and relaxing. Yours can be anything you like. Even if you just want to display a single pane of fabric, if you like it, then do it. You can have a lot of fun with embroidery or beads or buttons. You can add flowers or yarn, anything you can think of. Let loose and have fun!

  • Appliqué (I cut these dragon fly embroideries from some clearance home decor fabric to use as my appliqué)
  • Optional embellishments: sequins, beads, feathers, flowers, etc.
  • Staple Gun
  • 4 individual wooden frames. You can find these at Michaels in the canvas section. Basically, you will make your own canvas. However, you can buy an already made canvas if you want.Read more…
