Tutorial: DIY Fabric Wall Art

.DIY Zebra Fabric Wall Art.


Supplies Needed...
  • Shadow Box or Picture Frame without the glass
  • Scissors
  • Fabric
  • Glue Gun / Staple Gun

FYI: We made the shadow box ourself in advance and spray painted it black. 
10" x 8" x 2.5"
I used Zebra Fabric and Hot Pink with Black Polka Dot Fabric. I cut a letter "M" out of felt and glued it on the Pink Fabric with my Glue Gun.

DIY Step by Step Picture Tutorial...

Cover your Shadow Box with fabric.

Stretch the fabric as you are covering the box and staple, or glue, it down as you go. Do the left and right sides first.

Then, do the top side like you are wrapping a present.

Stretch the fabric and glue/staple it down as you go.

Do the same with the bottom side. Cut excess fabric as needed.

Super easy! Just like wrapping a gift :)

Make as many as you want and hang them on your wall.

I made these 2.5" thick because we are going to use them as shelves for little items.

Have fun creating!!
