I'm all about cheap, easy, quick ways to spruce up a room. Don't get me wrong, I love making quilts and refinishing furniture and other time-consuming crafts, but if you give me a project I can finish in one night, I'll be one happy girl! I recently moved into a brand new apartment. It's great, but there are a LOT of sad, empty walls just screaming for me to give them a makeover. Cic and I were at DI one day and she gave me the idea to put cute fabric in wooden hoops and hang them. Later that night I was at Jo-Ann's, picking out my fabric. About an hour and less than $20 later, my entry way was looking great! I bought cross-stitching hoops in varying sizes and got small cuts of fabric to stretch across them. Originally I was going to paint the hoops too, but I was too excited to wait, and in the end, I think that might have been too much color! I put the fabric in, attached the top layer of the hoop, cut off the excess, and voila! I had a masterpiece. I tied ribbons to the hoops to hang them at varying heights. It was seriously so easy and fun, and I absolutely love the result!
The best part is, I can put new fabric in those babies whenever I want a new look! Give it a try! You just might fall in love.
