It’s that time again!  Time for our monthly craft challenge!  This month, the craft item up for DIYing was fabric.  I’ll admit that some items have had me scratching my head for a good while and then sometimes, like this one, an idea will just pop right up.  Our basement bathroom is nothing short of plain.  I mean, pllllaaaaiiinnnn.  There’s nothing in there but the toilet, sink, and the old mirror from the previous owners.  We just haven’t really gotten around to saucing that one up yet so I thought up a fun way to add some much needed color and boldness.

What You’ll Need: Large Canvas, Fabric, Wooden Letters, Paint, Hot Glue

Lay the canvas on the fabric, pattern side down, and glue the edges to the back and trim any excess.  When you get to the corners, it’s easiest if you fold the fabric up as you would if you were wrapping a present.  My canvas is 16×14 and 1/2 a yard covered it easily.

Paint the letters and once they’re dry, glue them to the canvas.

Simple yet bold and colorful!  It may be the only piece of art in there, but it’s a step in the right direction.
Do you have a DIY including fabric?  We’d love for you to link up with us!
