Budget- Friendly Fabric Art Projects
For any homeowner these days, remodeling your house or improving it will simply cost you too much. However, since your home is your sanctuary, you want to make it beautiful and make changes now and then. It's normal to get easily tired with the same old furniture you have or that boring blank wall that always seems to scream back at you every time your eyes fall on it. It is then every homeowner's challenge to find ways to liven up their homes without having to spend too much. This is where fabric art projects from recycled materials can save not only your budget but also the beauty of your surroundings.
We have several DIY ideas that you can do on your own where you can save a lot or even spend nothing if you have the materials on hand. Here are some simple and affordable fabric art projects you will definitely love:
Makeover your bedroom by adding a new headboard. What you need is just a plywood, foam and fabric. Cut the plywood in any shape you want your headboard to be. Then use the foam for padding and cover it with fabric that will complement your bedroom.
Fill those walls with art. You don't need to spend fortunes on artwork just to make that blank space come to life. You can gather your old picture frames and place pieces of printed fabric on them instead of pictures. Place the frames close together so they will appear as one element. If you don't have your own frames, then you can buy some inexpensive embroidery hoops and use them instead. These hoops come in various sizes which will help you make use of even smaller pieces of fabric that you can recycle.
Quilts on walls and pillows. Creating colorful quilts is the most common way of recycling fabric. If you have old clothing or swatches of fabric, create a quilt using various shapes for your quilting blocks. You can then put them on walls, on your bed or sew them to make throw and pillowcases. Not only will you add more colors to your home but you get to extend the life of your old clothes.
There are still more fabric art projects that you can do and even think of. Not only will you save a lot while making your home better but you also get to play your role in saving the environment by recycling. All you need is to believe that you can do them creatively and be resourceful to look for the tools and things you need.
