My latest art obsession has been these stunning textile prints from Pottery Barn.
Stunning, right? But worth the $338 price tag?
I’m also in love with these Ikat framed prints, also from PB. But again, $1000 for the set. Yikes!
At the end of the day, it’s just framed fabric. So I made my own. And I may even prefer them to the PB version!
They literally take no effort to make and only cost whatever you spend on fabric and frames. You could easily do a shibori technique on some cotton fabric (think grade school tie-dying but with indigo dye) to create your own custom designs.
I chose to purchase these pretty pre-dyed fabrics from Etsy (they came all the way from Thailand!). Then I cut them to size and framed them.
As you can see, all I did was cut the fabric to the size I needed, then taped it to the matte.
Could there be an easier DIY?
By the way, aren’t those frames fab? They have the perfect medium toned color and a matte finish. Love ’em!
Each piece of art worked out at about $20 – $25 for the frame and $4.50 for the fabric.
I’m so happy with how they turned out and I think they are the perfect touch to this corner of my living room.
What do you think? Is this a project you’ll try? It is endless possibilities – pick a any fabric that complements your existing decor or that adds a pop of color and you’re good to go!
