As I’m all about upcycling and use strictly preloved items as much as possible in my projects I just had to come up with a coordinating DIY decor mate for the upcycled scrap art I created for my upstairs powder room. A peek through my vintage kimono scraps revealed the perfect piece for the awkward space above the mirror.
Grab your own pretty leftover fabric scrap and let’s create a No Sew DIY Wall Hanging that’s completely free and just your style!
All you need for this quick no sew project is a piece of leftover fabric, two sticks from the park, scissors and pinking shears (only if you’re fabric edges might fray).
Press your fabric flat and remove any wrinkles, if needed.
If you think the raw fabric edges might fray, fold it in half and grab those pinking shears.
Chop through the raw edges. Giving those edges a funky zigzag really does help prevent fraying.
Accordion fold the fabric and secure with clothespins (or whatever you have on hand).
Slice a small notch through each end of the folded fabric.
Open up the fabric and “weave” a stick through the notch-holes you just created along each end.
Add some rope or ribbon to each end of the top stick.
Hang it up and enjoy your (nearly) instant new art!
I’m super pleased with my pretty powder room art upcycles!
