No matter where I live I seem to accumulate fabric. Whether it was bought with a specific project in mind or just because I loved the fabric and hoped I might use it one day, my fabric collection has grown. Instead of it sitting in the cupboard I thought why not use my favourite pieces to create some new art to hang around the house.
Materials I used:
1. An old canvas print I already had
2. Staple Gun
3. Staple Remover
5. Fabric (make sure it is ironed to remove any creases)
Firstly I removed the staples of the current canvas print and turned it inside out and restapled it. The fabric I wanted to use was quite light so I didn't want the old canvas print to show through. I unscrewed the existing hook and kept to put back on later.
I then cut the fabric to size and stapled a few staples along one side before pulling taught and stapling the opposite side. It was then just a matter of working my way around making sure the fabric was pulled tight. The corners were folded just like you would a present. I then just replaced the hanging hook and we're finished!
