avant-guarde art

Great idea in the latest Style ad Home magazine…had to steal it right away and try it out! It’s a perfect way to add a great punch of energy to your space through artwork.
What you’ll need:

  • fun fabric
  • scissors
  • embroidery rings in multiple sizes
  • separate the embroidery ring into it’s two pieces
  • lay out the fabric on a hard, flat surface (easier for cutting!)
  • place the smaller of the two rings on the fabric…move it around so you see what you like inside the ring
  • cut the fabric at least 2 inches wider than your smaller ring
  • set the fabric, face down, on top of the larger ring
  • set the inside ring on top of the larger, outside ring. Centre and push down to tighten and secure the fabric
  • gently pull the fabric until it’s nice and tight inside the rings
  • tighten the screw on the side of the embroidery ring to secure
  • trim the excess fabric
  • hang on the wall
What’s great about this idea is that you can change out the fabrics as often as you like to change up the look. This took me about 10-15 minutes from start to finish (when I hung them on the wall!). 

And you can’t beat the price. I bought my supplies at Value Village…the “vintage-y” looking fabric is actually a set of curtains that I scooped up for $9.99 (and I have TONS left over for other projects), and both embroidery rings for $1.49 & $1.99.

I’m on the lookout for more embroidery rings, so I can expand this art piece all along the wall. I’ll mix up the fabrics too, so it will really have some punch!
xx rouge.
