Home or office decorating idea for under $15: Making a fabric canvas

AUG 22, 2011


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!

Materials:
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!
