Wall art made from placemats and fabric. I put this together for staging my husband’s home before we were married. We needed a large piece of art (that didn’t break the bank) for a family room with a vaulted ceiling. The base is a painter’s canvas I had not yet made use of. I would not recommend this as these can be expensive (it’s just we had it on hand). Rather, make your own frame, or buy stretcher-bars. The fabric pieces were purchased as remnants from a local fabric store (cheap!). The placemats were purchased at Marshall’s so they were also an economical choice. They were not in the best shape – I used a black marker to cover up the scratches and you would never know! Total investment was around $20 in materials.
The fabric was stapled onto the back of the frame, and the placemats were adhered with a hot glue gun. This was supposed to be a temporary thing, but we got several compliments on it, so it now hangs in our new home!
