As a mom, you’re always looking for ways to spruce up your home décor. But let’s face it, between work, taking care of the kids, and keeping the house in order, you don’t have a lot of time (or money) to spare. That’s where this quick and easy DIY comes in.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Step 1: Cut the Fabric to Size
First things first, you’ll need to cut the fabric to fit inside your frame. To do that, simply lay the fabric down on a flat surface and position the frame over it. Then, using a pencil, trace around the perimeter of the frame. Once you have your outline, carefully cut along the line with scissors.
Tip: If you’re not confident in your freehand cutting skills, you can always use a straight edge to trace a more precise line before you start cutting.
Step 2: Glue the Fabric in Place
Next, it’s time to glue the fabric in place. To do that, simply remove the backing from your frame and apply a generous amount of hot glue along the perimeter of the frame opening.
Then, quickly position the fabric over the glue before it has a chance to cool and set. Once the fabric is in place, press down along the edges to make sure it’s firmly adhered.
Tip: Don’t worry if there’s some excess fabric hanging off the edge of the frame. We’ll deal with that later.
Step 3: Trim Away Excess Fabric
Now that the fabric is glued in place, it’s time to trim away any excess material. To do that, simply take a pair of scissors and trim along the edge of the frame until there’s only about ½ inch of fabric remaining.
Once you’ve trimmed away the excess material, go ahead and remove any loose threads so that your finished product is nice and neat.
And that’s it! You’ve successfully framed your batik fabric!
There you have it—a quick and easy way to dress up an inexpensive piece of fabric and turn it into something special for your home décor.
This project is perfect for anyone who wants to add a personal touch to their home without spending a lot of money or taking on a big project. So grab some batik fabric and give it a try!
