I am still slowly adding vintage-inspired decor to our home and loving every minute of it. I’ve been going a little stir crazy in the house this last week and doing a lot of projects to keep me busy. Not being able to just go to the store for any little thing has really forced my creativity and allowed me to use what I have. Simple craft projects like this DIY framed vintage textiles art can make such a big impact – on our home and our minds! (post contains affiliate links, see disclosure)
I love this piece from McGee & Co, but it is super expensive, so I decided to make my own. I have tons of Belmont frames, the ones I use all over our house, and a pile of cheap toss pillow covers that were perfect for this project.
DIY FRAMED VINTAGE TEXTILES
- fabric or pillow cover of choice, I used one from H&M
- a frame of choice, I used this one
- fabric scissors
- super glue
- cut the seams and zipper out of the pillow cover
- trim off any excess, but leave a few frayed edges and don’t worry about it be perfectly straight
- iron out some of the edges so they lay flat, but don’t iron out all the wrinkles
- align textiles in the center of the frame, again don’t worry about it being perfect
- using the back of the frame paper, glue down the fabric onto the white sheet that came with the frame
- wait for it to dry, and assemble the frame
In the future, I might switch this out to a black frame so it stands out more. But for now, I am loving it. The frame I used is 24×36 but this project can be done with any size textile or frame. The pillow cover I used is no longer available, so I sourced a few others that would look great for this project. And below, I rounded up a few of my favorite textiles from Etsy.
