Hello! Last week I shared with you some of my go-to places for finding inexpensive, attractive home decor fabric (if you missed it you can find it, Here)! As promised, this week I am back with a comprehensive list of home decor projects you can create with FABRIC!
If you are not a sew-er that’s okay many of these projects do not require sewing and the one’s that do I made sure the tutorials were very thorough and easy to follow.
So let’s begin!!
21 Home Decor Projects Made with Fabric
1. Roman Shades- I found this tutorial for roman shades several years ago, before I had a blog. When we first moved into our home and I was trying to make the cherry cabinets work. I thought maybe some light colored window fabric shades would balance the dark wood cabinets out nicely.
I used this tutorial and the roman shades turned out great! However, I ended up not liking them for the space (and painting the cabinets white) and gave them to a friend but I would definitely use the tutorial again if I ever had a space that calls for roman shades.
2. Fabric Shower Curtain– Jessica from Mad in Crafts put together a great tutorial for making your own fabric shower curtain, Here. I really love when the shower curtain length is long enough to hit the floor. I have found that store bought ones often aren’t long enough! Making your own is a great solution!
3. Poufs– Despite their funny sounding name poufs have been quite the trend as of late.:-) They are great for foot rests and extra seating (my little ones love using our poofs as gaming or “movie” chairs). You can check out the tutorial, Here.
5. Pillow Covers– Pillow covers are one of my favorite ways to use fabric in home decor. I’ve diy-ed pillow covers in a variety of ways but Krista’s tutorial from the Happy Housie is one of my favorite (because it’s so quick).
6. Fabric Accent Wall- I was kind of blown away when I started seeing tutorials about people applying fabric to their walls. I haven’t tried it but it seems like a plausible option if you don’t want to deal with wall paper! Sherri from Young House Love’s provides a great tutorial, Here.
7. Fabric Storage Baskets– Storage baskets can come in handy for closets, playrooms, the pantry, and pretty much anywhere in the home where you want keep things organized. This fabric storage basket is a super cute option (and here is another option).
Just purchase a frame with a mat included (you can find them for under $10 at JoAnn Fabrics) and then add your choice of fabric. Use spray adhesive or fabric glue to adhere the fabric to the frame’s backing and voila!
9. Stretched Fabric Wall Decor– If you ever want to make a big statement with fabric on your wall then this is the tutorial for you! When I spotted the fabric below online I knew if would be the perfect pattern for my boys’ shared bedroom! In this tutorial I provide step by step instructions on how to turn fabric into framed canvas wall art!
10. Upholstered Headboard– I’m a big fan of upholstered headboards! When you DIY them you can choose what fabric you want and you don’t have to go solid. I’ve seen some really cute patterned ones. You can view the tutorial I used for my boys upholstered headboards, Here.
11. Fabric Covered Bulletin Board- I love the chic look of this bulletin board covered in fabric and nailhead! It would be perfect for an office, bedroom, or command center!
13. Hanging Book Storage- When I spotted this on Pinterest awhile back I just had to go check it out! If you have a blank space on your wall and you need a place to put books or organize papers consider this fabric hanging book storage tutorial.
15. Reupholster Chair– I can sew straight lines but I’m not a big sew-er. So the fact that I reupholstered a few side chairs for my living room was kind of a big deal to me. Use this step by step tutorial to add fabric to worn or updated chairs.
16. Seat Cushion- Another way you can add fabric to chairs is through seat cushions. These are great in kitchens where at the seats are often wooden and a bit hard on the tush. I love how Susan’s (from Morning Stitch) DIY chair pad turned out! You can check out her tutorial, Here.
19. Hider/Cover- Another great way to use fabric in home decor is for hiding less aesthetically pleasing places in your home. For example in my home we have our cat’s litter box located under the utility sink in the laundry room. It is quite the eye (and nose) sore when you walk into the laundry room.
So I used some inexpensive fabric and elastic to create a sink skirt and now we don’t ever have to see the litter box unless we are cleaning it!
21. Fabric Lampshade– Finally, adding fabric to an existing plain or unattractive lampshade is a simple way to upscale your decor. Here is an easy to follow video tutorial from Better Homes and Gardens!
Fabric truly can go a long way in creating a more custom, beautiful home! I hope you enjoyed these ideas (and feel free to pin the image below as a resource for future fabric projects)! As always thanks for being here and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!:-)
