We’ve spent the last year working on lots of remodel updates and this year I hope to focus on decorating the walls in my home. When creating photo collages, I really like incorporating a variety or art. A fun, easy, and inexpensive option for art is printing on fabric.
To print on fabric, you need a document to print, an 8×10 piece of fabric, spray adhesive, and an ink jet printer.
I created artwork that shows off our family mantra using an online editing program called picmonkey…any software program would work, just set up the document to be 8×10 (or whichever size you’re wanting to frame).
When the document is ready to go, use spray adhesive on an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of computer paper and press an 8 1/2 x 11 piece of burlap. Once the fabric is adhered, trim any excess around the edges. (Cover your work area when using spray adhesive because you will have some over spray).
Empty the paper holder from the printer and fill with your burlap lined paper. Press print and Viola! If you’d like to remove your paper backing you can, but I opt to leave it attached to the burlap, and simply open my frame back, and insert my new piece of art! I’m so excited to use this in my art collage in my front room. Bare walls are on the way out.
I love that making a burlap framed quote adds texture to the room and is a fast and easy project with a big impact! Happy crafting and decorating!!!
