What if you don’t have the budget for a canvas wall art, but there’s a big blank wall at home that’s begging for a decor? Then canvas wall art pieces using shower curtains is a great solution for you!
They are not hard to find if you want to have one for your home but don’t have the artistic talent to create it yourself. What’s hard to find is a piece of art that is very affordable. (Even mass-produced wall art pieces are quite expensive!)
This shower curtain wall art idea is truly a clever DIY project for anyone who needs an easy and affordable solution to adding a large wall hanging at home. Though they may not look like it, shower curtains make great canvas art pieces! You’d be surprised to find plenty of beautifully designed shower curtains today. Why you might even have a hard time deciding which one to get ;)
So after choosing an artistic shower curtain that you like, just create a timber frame, attach the shower curtain using staple gun and hang it on your wall with sawtooth picture hangers! And that’s it! Fast and easy!
The only minor extra steps you need to do for this project are:
- Build the frame slightly smaller than the size of your shower curtain so that you can staple the curtain at the back where no one can see it. Of course, it will give you nice edges as well.
- Don’t forget to steam iron the shower curtain so that you don’t have fold marks on your wall art. You can also use a regular iron on low heat if you don’t have a steam iron.
You’ll need these materials:
- Shower Curtain
- 2 pcs 2″ x 1″ x 70″ (Top & Bottom Frame)
- 4 pcs 2″ x 1″ x 68″ (Side Frames & Middle Support)
- Nails / Wood Screws
- Sawtooth Picture Hangers
And these tools:
- Measuring Tape
- Staple Gun
- Drill / Nail Gun
- (Steam) Iron
- Spirit Level (optional)
