How to make your own wall art easily and affordably for home staging.
I needed art to stage my condo for resale, but couldn't really afford to buy the amount of art necessary to do a good job. I thought about painting canvases myself, but I wasn't confident in my painting skills and I didn't want to buy all the supplies to just have it all suck. I saw a tip online to use fabric in frames or on a canvas and started going through my gorgeous fabric collection- I thought "Yay, I can do this! I love fabric!"
I went to my local craft store where I was able to get a 2 pack of 16x20" blank Art Canvas (affiliate link) for $7.99 on sale. I bought a light duty staple gun for $7.99 as well, and some extra staples. I had some fabric to use, but I found some great fabric in the remnants bin too... It is home decor fabric and it was enough to cover 2 of the canvases. $14.
All I did was iron the fabric and pull it tight over the canvas, stapling it to the back. I folded the corners carefully so they wouldn't stick out.

|Done. I did double fold some of my fabric just to keep little fraying pieces from sticking out.|
