Upcycled fabric wall hanging - creative ramblings

I wanted to create a larger statement piece for my living room without spending a lot of money. I headed to the thrift store to see what inspired me.  (If you want to see where I’m shopping and all my cool finds be sure to watch my Instagram Stories).  On this trip I picked up a white cloth napkin for $.62 that was in really good, if not new, condition.  When I got home I gathered a few other supplies and set out to make a fabric wall hanging.

Fabric Wall Hanging Supplies

  • Cloth napkin
  • Stick
  • Twine
  • Hot Glue
  • Printed verse
  • Sharpie
  • Magnets (optional)

I started by typing a verse that both calms and motivates me; For with God nothing shall be impossible Luke 1:37.  I laid this out in PicMonkey and printed it on a letter sized sheet of paper.  To transfer the words to the fabric, I placed the print under the napkin and used a Sharpie to trace them.  Super easy process!

Once the letters were traced, I went back over each word and filled it in with more black to help the verse stand out.

To hang this fabric art I grabbed a stick from my yard, yup just a plain old stick!  This one has been inside all winter so it’s dry and rounded on the edges from lots of sword fights and other pretend play.  I wrapped one edge of the fabric around the stick and used hot glue to secure the edges.  I also added magnets to the bottom corners to help the napkin hang nicely.

Finally, I tied a piece of twine to the ends of the stick to hang it up.  This fabric wall hanging is above my piano and fits perfectly with the simple decorations I have in that corner.
