I hope you found some DIY wall art projects to inspire you. I’m currently hanging two new pieces of canvas artwork in my family room. I don’t know if I’ll reveal them soon or wait until my fall home tour in September. I’d kind of like to wait, but we’ll see.

  1. Some really cute ideas. In particular, I liked the hoops with fabric. At first I thought they were vintage plates! I have a huge hoop that I was suppose to use for quilting but never did. I can picture sewing together some fabric scraps and making a patchwork quilt motif and placing it in the hoop. Then my other favorite is the botanical print on the old book pages. That looks like a fun one, too. Thanks for sharing.
