A Little Fabric Goes A Long Way

For those of us with limited sewing skills, it’s easy to get intimidated by the idea of using fabric for design purposes, but today’s Nest Tip will ease your woven woes! Here are two ways to use fabric around your home that are sure to make your nest look it’s best!

Looking for an easy and inexpensive way to decorate your walls? Buying art can be a time-consuming and costly process, but a little bit of fabric can be transformed into the most interesting artwork your walls have ever seen! To use fabric for wall art all you need is a cut of your favorite print and a collection of blank canvases (these can be found at any craft or art supply store). Simply stretch the fabric over the canvases and use staples to secure it in place. Then hang the canvases on your wall for your daily dose of instant art!


If you can’t get enough DIY fabric ideas for your home, check out this headboard made from different fabric prints! The process for this headboard is very similar to the fabric artworks, so no sewing needed! For a complete set of instructions to this project, click here. This headboard is sure to make your room (and your bed) look a lot cozier!
