Wall art and wall decor don’t have to be just about paintings and/or photographs. That’s the more traditional approach to decorating walls. Fabric wall hangings, however, can really make a room more decorative and really do add a personal touch to your decorating theme. Maybe it’s time to consider using some fabric in your next decorating project?
There’s so many different ways to create this type of wall art so don’t panic if you don’t know where to start. How far you go with this will depend entirely on what your artistic leanings are and how much time you can invest in the project itself. Some people are satisfied with fairly simple wall art, while other people find it fun to spend a lot of time making their own unique piece of wall art.
One of the quickest and easiest ways to create fabric wall art is just to find a design that you are fond of, an then to stretch it over a frame. You can then hang this piece of fabric art in your room without much trouble. In fact, this will end up looking just like another painting or picture but have that added touch of style to it from being created with fabric.
This is a good thing to do if you have a quilt that you like but don’t use on a regular basis. You can take all or part of the quilt, and frame it to create your new work of art. Another option, of course, is just to find a tapestry and hang it up. However, it can be relatively hard to find tapestries – unless you’re in the habit of finding such things.
Other examples of fabric wall hangings that you can look for are expensive or detailed carpet. There are some carpets that are so beautiful that they will decorate any wall in any room. This might sound a bit off the wall but it’s worth investigating.
If you have more time to spend on your wall art, then you might want to consider doing some embroidery. You can either embroider your own design, or you can find a kit that makes it very easy to put together an embroidered picture on a piece of fabric. Either way this will give you a truly unique piece of wall art for your (or a friends) home.
Most people who are into embroidery will find that this is a fun way to create decorative wall art. Embroidery can be very time consuming but the final results are always worth the effort.
Finally, the last type of wall art involves painting directly onto the fabric itself. This is not all that different from making your own painting, but some people find that painting on different types of fabric is more fun. The reason for this is that every fabric will give a different texture after it has been painted on and this will allow your creative streak to run wild and create some real conversation pieces.
So it’s time to think outside the box and use more fabric when you decide to redecorate your walls.
