DIY Fabric Wall Art!

So we have these built-in shelves in our family room and I’m not liking it much lately. It is sometimes too much of work and dusting them is a never-ending chore  😦


As you see, I filled the smaller ones with little bit of everything that mostly matches the family room style(traditional).  I love the way it came up – different shapes, colors and textures. And the dolls are from Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, India and US 🙂

However, filling the large shelf (9′ X 3.5′) was a big challenge!

Finally, after 6 months I have a perfect and inexpensive piece of art ❤


Inspired from BHG (better homes and garden) magazine – decided to give it a try. I started looking for wall paper and textured gift wrap rolls. I couldn’t find anything that matches the room style and decided to go with fabric.

I am really into Peacock lately…;-) and couldn’t wait to order this beautiful 24 inch fabric panel @ for $10.

Bought 2 custom sized dowel rods and jute twine from Home Depot.


Sew the edges, rolled the top and bottom of the fabric over the rods and attached with glue and staples.


And Tadahhhh…..


I absolutely love the way it looks and costed me less than $25.

Hi, I am very delighted that you stopped by! Welcome to Creative ME!!! I 'm a wife to an amazing hubby and recently mother to an adorable little munchkin :-), an Asian(Indian) native, nomad for a while and now currently @Portland, Oregan. Recently relocated from The Grand Canyon State and still adjusting to the gloomy weather here... When we first we moved to US(2012) ,our first 2 months of accommodation was in a hotel and that's when everything started. You must be wondering HOW? I was introduced to HGTV and started reading craft blogs. Ohh yes, PINTERST toooo and that is my fav! Well, inspired from these places, I started to DIY on budget and decorate our home. Whenever I posted pics of my projects on Facebook, everyone loved and gave many positive comments. Some of them also said I should not look for a job, instead start a blog or sell some of my projects ;) They thought I was doing something very cool!! That was a great motivation and I decided to tickle my creative senses to tame the stress monster ;-) And then, one day here is my blog , where I share my ideas and projects with friends, family and all other aspiring DIY-er's :) And if you like my blog, please come back and also don't forget to tell your friends :) Lastly, if you have a fun and functional craft or project or even a simple recipe I want to hear….please let me know and I can feature, down the line we will make Creative ME to WE..;)
