I was so excited to learn that I would be participating in Wayfair’s Great Craft Swap. I love doing crafty things (or at least attempting them), and the Wayfair Homemakers are always fun to work with. If you don’t know what the Wayfair Great Craft Swap is, I’ll explain it for you; we were shipped a Wayfair item and asked to create a craft from it. We would then ship that craft to another Wayfair Homemaker as a gift. My craft is actually going to a blogger friend, but I can’t ruin her surprise. My Wayfair item was a damask table cloth that I used to help create some fun Holiday Wall Art. It’s perfect for a mantle or to hang on the wall, and it’s simple enough that an crafter can do it in a relatively short period of time.
Before you fuss, I know it isn’t quite time to decorate for Christmas; we haven’t made it through Halloween yet. I like to plan my holiday decorating a few months out, especially when I’m creating DIY decorations. I staged my mantel so that you would get an idea of what it would look like. I actually made two, but an altercation between my dog and cat ultimately let to the demise of the smaller one. Holiday wall art is fun to group together in various sizes, and you can make the bows as fancy as you desire. I decided I would do something simple since I had this beautiful plaid ribbon to work with. You could also add a large gift tag for a fun touch.
I do have a small confession to make, this was my second craft attempt with the tablecloth. I had another idea for using that tablecloth that didn’t work out quite like I hoped.
You’re gonna need a few supplies to start your Holiday Wall Art Project.
- Art Canvas in desired size(s)
- Staple gun
- Staple gun staples
- Wired ribbon
- Hot glue gun
- Glue Sticks
- Cut enough fabric to cover the canvas and wrap around the sides.
- Begin by carefully stapling the fabric to the top center of the canvas and then the bottom center (I work opposites).
- Carefully stretch the fabric across the canvas and secure with staple gun.
- I placed staples every inch or so.
- Cut two strips of ribbon to stretch the length and width of the canvas
- Secure using staples
- Create a bow in desired style
- Secure with hot glue
These present themed canvas be done quickly and arranged in a variety of ways.
