Easy Peasy Wall Art Revisited

Creating Easy Fabric Wall Art

One of our more popular blog posts was a DIY Tutorial from 2011: EASY PEASY WALL ART.  We shared and demonstrated how to attach fabric to an old or used canvas, as shown below.

This past week we shared our crafting knowledge, skills and tools with two young roommates furnishing their first college apartment.

Their fabric choice: "In Crowd" by Alexander Henry.  Quite "hip", isn't it!

Using a canvas they purchased for $3, they got right to work with the staple gun and scissors.

 Stretch, smooth, staple, stretch, smooth, staple, cut and repeat....

Picking Daisies was quite a center of activity and creation that day...

And Voila!  Easy Peasy!  Here they are, showing off their finished product, though there was some attempt to upstage the faces on the fabric.

It's at home in their apartment now - just look at this stylish hallway!
