With that in mind, I spent a few minutes today picking out a modern fabric from Spotlight and covering a few old canvases I had in order to create some new wall art. Fabric over canvasses is one of my favourite "instant art" decorating things to do. It's inexpensive and quick and easy to pull together...right up my ally.
The canvasses I have are 38cm by 38cm wide. That means that 1 metre of fabric was more than enough to cover all three and some left over for cushions.
I cut the fabric into 42cm by 42cm squares so I have a bit of fabric to fold around the edges of the canvasses.
Then I stripped the old fabric off the canvases, ready for the new style.
Placing the canvas exactly in the middle of the fabric, I folded the fabric over the edge of the canvas. I then used a staple gun to secure it on.
One down, another two to go.
Neatly fold the excess fabric at the corners and again, staple down securely.
Ta da! Three lovely new art-works which will look fantastic on the crisp new painted walls. At less than $10 for the fabric (I used about $4 worth for this project) and if you had to buy the canvasses for a few dollars each (from a $2 shop, don't go to a art store and buy the expensive ones), this art would cost you less than $15.
If you like this fabric, it can be found at Spotlight and it's called "Happiness".
