 These lovely flower canvases are ones I made for my oldest {I think} after visiting family. My brother-in-law had done some for my niece {which, I think, were much nicer than mine} and I thought I'd try to do the same. 

Truth be told, I've never really liked how mine turned out, but owell. I left them. Until now. 
I thought it seemed to be the perfect time to shake things up. 

I'm crazy like that. And I'm impatient. So, once I knew I wanted to change them, I knew I wanted to change them RIGHT NOW!

Another super easy project that took little to no time {because who really has time?}
The same can be done with any new canvas...choose the size, choose the fabric and WOW, instant new artwork for your wall!

Thank goodness I had my little helper {who, in this shot, is posing after drawing chalk all over her face}.

She is just so amused by her mom's crazy craftiness, I can tell. 

Completed and on the wall in Miss Libby's room. Total time from start to finish was 20 minutes {not including the exorbitant amount of time spent choosing fabrics, but still...not too shabby...}

SIDENOTE - Now, I'm paint the walls a nice subtle grass green...

Another idea? Take 4 pieces of wood & make your own larger framed piece of "fabric artwork," like I did in our TV room. This is a large wall and needed a relatively large piece on it. Choose a favorite fabric & become one with the staple gun, stapling the fabric to the wood. :)

Have a great weekend, everyone! We've got three volleyball games and a SUPER DUPER fun birthday party for Libby Lu!! :)
