If you are anything like me, whenever I go into Fabric Land I always see beautiful fabric and then my mind starts to work overtime for a reason to buy it. Here is a great way to add color and interest to your walls without breaking the bank. Sometimes it is next to impossible to find a great piece of art that works well in your space. Try this project for a short term fix or if it works, for long term.

Find some lovely fabric that works for your space.
Buy a large art canvas. For this project I used a large piece of foam board.
Buy enough fabric to overlap the board 5 or 6 inches all around.
Stretch the fabric and staple one end. Stretch again and staple the opposite end.
Working from the back fold the corners as you would a present so that the corners are not bulky and staple in place.
Stretch and pull the fabric to the other side and staple.
You want the fabric to nice and tight with no puckers or gathers.
This project can be done for less than $50 depending on the size of canvas you use.
This is a great opportunity to get a really large piece of art for your walls.
