When it comes to home design, the fabric is the most important element in designing a room. It can be used in many ways and its a great way to save money by making your own accessories for the room. You can add color, pattern, and texture to space. I was looking for something that could function as a headboard and at the same time be artwork for my daughter NYC apartment. She had this one white wall. Instead of adding a headboard I design 4 large canvases and created a fabric wall hanging that function as a headboard too. Wrap it around the canvas is very easy. You can use any fabric you like and create a wall hanging. Check out below how to make a Moroccan inspired fabric wall hanging
- Staple gun
My daughter has been hinting for months for new items for her bedroom. Her love for colorful fabrics and natural elements made it easy for me to design the wall hangings. We decided on a Moroccan theme. I create a design for her that had 4 different design patterns of fabric. Each canvas would have a different pattern design.
- Arrange your canvases in the order they will hang on the wall. Determine which fabric to put on each canvas. I found 4 different styles of fabric. Need 1 yard for each canvass. So I purchased 4 yards.
- Place one canvas on top of your fabric and cut around the frame leaving about 1 1/2 to 2 inches of material on each side.
- Make sure the fabric is taut and staple the sides. Fold the fabric on each corner and staple.
- Add two screw eyes on each end of the canvas. Attach wire on each end. You are ready to hand the canvas
If you have the leftover fabric you can make a pillow to match the canvasses using the envelope pillow tutorial Use this post how to create an envelope pillow.

Tara, it was so much fun to visit my daughter and fix up her room, she really needed it. Maria
What a creative way to use artist canvases and fabric for a high style headboard! The shelving on each side of the bed look like design elements and add to the look you wanted. Sure hope you stayed warm in NYC!
