DIY Fabric Wall Art

SKU: X-HT-300589



Adding fabric wall art to your living room, bedroom or home office is a fun and easy way to add color and pattern to a room. It’s also a great way to use up that leftover fabric from your most recent upholstery project. With just a handful of materials and tools, you’ll have DIY wall art to hang around your house. Let’s get started with this quick, no-sew DIY project.

Because these wall art panels are intended for inside the home, you have lots of freedom with your fabric choices. If this wall art was hanging outside, you’d want to choose an upholstery fabric with high UV and fade resistance, as well as mildew resistance. But we don’t have those limitations with this indoor project. We chose a home décor fabric in a bright and bold floral pattern that will add a punch of color and personality to our living room.

Wouldn’t this be a fun project to make with kids? They could pick out fabric to match their bedrooms or playroom. Your child could help you cut and measure the fabric and batting, but leave the stapling to the adults.

Here are the materials and tools you’ll need for this DIY. You can find all the sewing supplies for this project right here at Sailrite.
