I saw something similar to this in a store and thought "I could do that!"

So months later I headed to Home Depot and purchased two pieces of inexpensive wood that were about 1" x 1/2" and then I cut and nailed together the frame (make sure all your sides are even!) and stapled the fabric (staple once on each side in the middle sections first then work your way to the middle) and ribbon to the inside of the frame.

Voila - Instant Art!!

That is so cool!  Grin

It also gives me an idea. The same thing...only with real zippers and white fabric underneath. You could move the zippers to change the art.

great idea. we've got lots of walls with nothing on them and needed some inexpensive ideas.

so the frame is only wood with fabric stretched over it? no canvas or anything else under the fabric?

thanks for sharing.

No, just the fabric. You could put some iron-on interfacing That might make it sturdier.

It is an inexpensive way to put something on the wall.
I can't paint my walls, so this adds to them!

Thank you for your comments!
