Simple Fabric Covered Canvas Art

Artwork:

I'm redecorating the spare room at the moment. Just brightening it up a little. This artwork took me all of 5 minutes to make.  

All you need is:
  • Cheap canvas (discount stores are the best place to get these)
  • Fabric to cover the canvas (at least 5cm extra around the top of the canvas)
  • Scissors
  • Staple gun


Simply cut the fabric so you have an overhang of at least 5cm around all sides of the canvas. 


Start stapling the fabric at along one end - as close as you need to to ensure the fabric sits smoothly.


Then repeat on the opposite end, making sure you keep the fabric tight on the 'face' of the canvas.

Repeat for the other 2 sides, folding down each of the corners like you would wrap a present.

Then, hang and enjoy! This project is also great because, similar to the Wrapping Paper Art I made, when you get tired of the fabric you can simply replace it.

Happy creating!
