You know when it comes to DIY, I love quick and easy. Using up leftover supplies? Even better. Make it a multi-functional piece and count me into this game. This DIY framed fabric wall art checks all those boxes and then some. It’s super simple, takes just a few minutes, and better yet – doesn’t look too crafty. Over the weekend I whipped up this little beauty and am already planning another.

I found this frame at Home Goods
This easy DIY framed fabric tray put them both to good use! I’m using it here in our bedroom reading nook as a tray.
DIY Framed Fabric Wall Art
- Sturdy, deep inset frame – I used an 8 x 10″ similar to this one but would’ve made a larger one if I had
- Fabric Remnant slightly larger than frame size, a thicker decorator weight seems to work best. I used this Ecru Shibori but this Indigo Shibori or this Black Mudcloth would look pretty with a rustic wood frame.
- Scissors & Pencil & Iron
Framed Fabric Steps
Ok, this is so easy, you probably don’t even need me here. But! I do have a few tips:
- Iron Fabric – Wrinkles just won’t give you the desired effect. For tough wrinkles, try steam (check fabric suggestions first) or check out a fabric wrinkle release spray
- Cut Fabric – Use the paper or cardboard insert within the frame to measure and trace your fabric. Or, if you’re extra fancy, use a rotary cutter and mat.
- Insert Fabric into Frame – Yay! New Artwork!
