Fabric Canvas

Ever seen wall art that you really wanted, but was way too expensive?
Here's an easy way to make your own stunning wall art.

All you need is a staple gun, a canvas of any size from a craft or hobby store, and some fabric.
I 'fussy cut' my fabric, meaning that I decided what part of the design I wanted to show in the middle of the canvas, and then cut round it. Make sure you are generous with your cutting as it will need to be able to fit round the edges too. I stapled the longer edges first, starting from the middle and working out. Make sure you pull the fabric nice and tight. Then, do the shorter edges. When you get to the corners, just fold the fabric in and staple over them as shown below.

Hang it up and admire your work. :D

It's a great first project with a staple gun, it was my first one!

See you on Friday. :)
