Linen wall art

Paper wall art: Jessica, at Stayathomeista.com worked on this project to help improve the acoustics in their bare-walled dining room. Using large picture frames, beautiful, hand-made, white paper patterns, and linen fabric, she and her husband created four stunning art pieces for just around $200.

A subtle Union Jack. Tanya, another stay-at-home DIYer, featured her Union Jack DIY Wall Art on her blog. She used a large cork board, purchased at a garage sale, as the "frame." She chose three complementary, neutrally colored fabrics. The lightest one was used to cover the frame, the other two were used to create the Union Jack, and only scissors and hot glue gun were required.
