Home or office decorating idea for under $15: Making a fabric canvas
Having just snapped a photo of one of the fabric frames Spoonflower team member Caitlin has in the window by her desk, I decided that rather than sharing it by itself it might be a better idea to post the photo in the context of a short, very simple (very) tutorial:
Creating a beautiful frame to hang on your wall -- or place in your office window -- using Spoonflower fabric is an easy and inexpensive decorating idea that costs less than $15. A fabric frame also makes an affordable and original gift!
Fat quarter of Bluebird fabric from Golly Bard's Woodland collection: $11
Masterpiece 8" x 8" wood stretcher frame (from Amazon): $1.96
Tools: staple gun
Time: 5 min.
Quilting-weight cotton works fine for canvas stretcher frames, but for a more sturdy fabric that holds slightly denser color from the inks you might choose linen-cotton (see available fabrics). We used Gollybard's fabric for the frame pictured above, but Spoonflower is full of unique fabrics that would work just as well!
