Fabric as Wall ArtNeed to fill up space on a blank wall? Instead of buying expensive artwork, use a piece of fabric instead! Get a heavy fabric with the design of your choice and cut it four to six inches longer than the piece of canvas you are stapling it to.

Once you neatly stapled the fabric, hang the canvas on the wall and enjoy!
