When was picking up the fabric last week, from the beloved and fabulous designer Nate Berkus from Joann’s, I stumbled across this bird fabric in the leftover bin. It was about 5/6 of a yard and priced at $8.33 after my coupon for 40% off was used. It was sold! I love the playful colors, but more of a mature feel to it. It almost reminds me of a watercoloring. I have had it for about 2 weeks now and last night decided I would frame it. Because it is fabric, I didn’t need a professional. I hopped over to IKEA and picked up a frame for about $17. Most of the frames in my home are rectangular, so went with the square. I measured about an inch of fabric around the edges of the back and cut to size.
Next, I folded like you would when wrapping a gift ( yay Christmas is almost here 🙂 ). Then used scotch tape to secure the fabric tightly to the back of the frame.
i reconstructed the frame and there you have it. $26 art! This totally beats out the $150+ prints I have be sourcing on Etsy. Pardon the cat, he is obsessed with this ( must be the birds) so could not snap a pic without him present. I’ll be hanging this with other new prints later this week to our gallery wall. Stay tuned.
