Hello, I am Amanda and I am thrilled to be sharing my first DIY post here at the LIFE of a not so ordinary WIFE! Today, I am going to show you how to make an inexpensive art wall using fabric remnants.
I am a fabric lover which leaves me with a lot of left over fabric. I love all of the different patterns and colors so, even if it’s just a scrap it is hard for me to part with beautiful fabric.
After staring at the blank wall in my guest bedroom, I decided to put my fabric remnants to good use and I made an art wall using embroidery hoops and left over fabric.
I bought a few large wooden hoops at Hobby Lobby, added some fabric and hung the hoops on the wall.
I liked the look so I started looking for “lots” of wooden hoops on ebay.
I purchased thirty different sized hoops for $15 (this is a great deal and much less expensive than buying brand new hoops).
I added my leftover fabric to the hoops. To make it easier, I tried not to worry a lot about fabric placement (or what part of the fabric looked best). If you are interested in a budget art wall, use what you have! If you like the fabric, DON’T WORRY about it matching!
Next I trimmed all the extra fabric and began placing the hoops on the wall.
I rotated sides and added a few hoops on the left and then a few on the right. There is no right or wrong way to do it. I used very small nails and sticky tack to prevent the hoops from falling off the wall if someone bumped into them.
Try your best NOT to over think the placement. Some of my hoops touch and some don’t.
My completed (for now) embroidery hoop art wall.
The possibilities are endless with this kind of project!
You could continually add to your wall as you acquire more fabric.
You could have some of your hoops monogrammed to spell out a name or special saying.
Use your imagination!
Best of all, if you use your own fabric no one will have a wall like yours!
I hope this project inspires you! I’d be happy to help if you have any questions!
Thanks Melissa! I look forward to sharing with you again soon.
