Crafting for Baby

From the City...

I've been trying to keep myself busy lately with craft projects and my mother in law Diane gave me the best idea for inexpensive art to hang above the baby crib.

I found this incredible bird fabric that pretty much set off the rest of the colors in the nursery (nursery being the one wall in our bedroom, Toronto rent is expensive!!). From there, Simon, Diane and I picked two other fabrics that seemed to work well with the bird fabric. We then picked up some cheap canvasses from the dollar store. From there we cut the fabric with about two inches around the canvas and then stapled it to the wooden frame making sure to pull the fabric as tight as possible. The corners are the trickiest part. The strategy I used was folding the fabric corners similar to how you would fold the corners of a Christmas present.

The biggest purchase you need to make is the heavy duty wood stapler. But trust me, it's worth it. You'll find yourself stapling everything just because you can.

Give it a try.
