Picture of Fabric panel wall art with embellishments
Why not give your Mom a unique decorative fabric panel to hang on her wall for a Mother's Day gift; some added embellishments gives it a nice personal touch.

Step 1: Materials:

Picture of Materials:
I picked up some fabric from the "remnants" pile at a fabric store, which cost about $5 with enough left over to make a second panel. The picture frame was just $1.25 at a dollar store. The beads, thread, and buttons I had lying around at home, making this a fairly inexpensive project (shh, don't tell Mom it was so cheap!)

  • Pretty fabric
  • Picture frame (I used a certificate frame, 8.5X11in)
  • Thread, needle, scissors
  • Buttons, beads, ribbon, lace, embroidery thread, grommets (what ever you can think of to add to your fabric).

You can make these as large or small as you'd like; poster size would look great, or how about several small matching 5X7in frames.

Love the fabric. Does it have a name? I'd love to find something similar.

It is called Dharma/Hip by Robert Allen, here is a link:

I bought it from a fabric store that deals mostly with upholstery fabric.

I did something like this without the embellishments. I like what you did!

Cool project, using ceiling tiles is a great idea and a nice way to store jewelry.
Excellent instructable! Beautiful project. Thanks for sharing.
