This is a quick, easy and very successful way to have instant art for the walls in s colour or pattern to match a room. It’s easily changeable, it’s a great way to make gifts, and it’s as simple as you need it to be if you not so confident with your creativity.

Hunt down fabrics from anywhere and everywhere – haberdashery stores, markets, old clothes, charity shops, use old bed linen or anything where you love the pattern or colour. Embroidery hoops are available from all good haberdashers, from Hobby Craft or other craft stores, on eBay or Etsy and you could even find second hand options and remove whatever is previously framed.

We like to find great little projects to share with you, and although this one looks a bit more higher skill level than our usual finds, they do insist it’s not hard – and what a super result you’d get.

This great wooden triangle shelf would make a fab feature on any room. The wood could be kept natural or painted up to match the room colours and even changed at a later date if the decor changes.

Adorn with herb pots in a kitchen, collated small curiosities in the lounge or cute little dolls and figures in a nursery. So versatile and a great little project to try out.
