DIY Framed Fabric Wall Art

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.

DIY framed fabric tray for easy home decor

I found this frame at Home Goods awhile ago and though I love it, I never found the right place for it. It has nice deep sides, which make it perfect for a tray. After making pillows for the beach house rental, there were a lot of beautiful shibori and decorator fabric remnants left over. This easy DIY framed fabric tray put them both to good use! I’m using it here in our bedroom reading nook.


  • 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:

  1. Iron your fabric like crazy. 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
  2. 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.
  3. Consider removing the back support for tabletop frames. Mine laid flat and wall frames won’t have the little kickstand, but you may have to look at removing it so it will lay nicely.
