Quick and easy wall art

Happy Monday!

Have you ever seen the fabric at Ikea?  I love it! Everytime I make it to Ikea I look and look at that fabric wanting to do something with it.  The last time I was there I bought some of this dandelion print that I always stare at.  I didn't know exactly what I was going to do with it, but I'd figure that out later.  Here's what I decided....

I took the inside to this frame that I used in the playroom. Here it is....



Then, I took my dandelion fabric...


And simply used spray adhesive to attach it....all over the front, then folded and adhesed (is that a word?) the back flaps. The secret to spray adhesive is to spray both sides and then let it sit a minute before putting it together.  Actually, that's not much of a secret...it's actually what the directions on the can tell you to do. I just didn't read those directions until the 3rd time I had used spray adhesive for things. 


Anyway, then it was done!


How easy!  I just nailed it right through into the wall in my bedroom.

  9. I'm so glad that I'm not the only one that buys lovely fabric, even though they aren't sure what they are going to do with it! I was thinking about doing this too, but didn't think about using a spray adhesive. I bet your piece of handy work is going to make you smile whenever you walk past it!
