Quick and Easy Wall Art

I've had a pack of matching frames sitting around for quite some time now because I could never decide which photos to fill them with.

So, while I was going through my stash of 'reclaimed' fabric, I came up with this:

Beautiful, right? Sorry if I'm smug, but I'm really pleased with how this turned out. And it was probably one of the easiest projects I've ever done! 

You know those paper inserts they always have in store-bought frames? I just used that as a template by placing it on the fabrics and using a metal yardstick to use as an edge for my rotary cutter. A quilting square would work just as well, but getting it from the other room was much more difficult than making do with the yardstick... :) 

The background fabric is from various recycled sources (old shirt, pillowcase, pajama pants) and the lace is from an old curtain.  

I'd make a tutorial, but it's really that simple. No glue, sewing, nothing. Just cut, place and hang. 

Feel free to ask questions if you need me to elaborate more!


  1. This is cool... I have actually been looking for something like this- except for a different theme/pattern. Oh and yeah.... I just started that blog and have no idea what I'm doing- so you will probably be helping me. I just figured out how to follow you!

  2. Love it! Nice choice of fabrics too.

  3. Thanks guys! Just trying to some clutter into something useful :)
