I Love this! Very creative!
This is cute and you've found a way to recycle and clean up the environment. :)
Make your own scenes outside your "window". If you don't have a window, just paint one! I love beach and lighthouse scenes. So, I made my window looking out at a lighthouse.
Are you having a hard time with trying to decide what to place on your wall in your open foyer? Or even just on a long wall? I have the solution for you!

This is a ruined lace tablecloth that was reincarnated into a wall hanging!
I cut a broom handle to fit and painted it. I put the drawer pull on the right end to go with the leaf rod finial on the other - its attached to the wall with 2 cup hooks. A dragonfly pop jewelry pin sits on the left end by the leaves.

Cute idea....good that you recycled it and made it into something new!
BEAUTIFUL! Now I know what I can do with table cloth my grandma crocheted - thanks for this great idea - I had never thought of this one but thanks to you I will now proudly display what my grandmother lovingly made years ago.
Great idea! Reminds me I need some as valances!
Can't figure out what to do with all that extra fabric hanging around in your crafting bags?
Make a gorgeous fabric picture frame to coordinate with your curtains or drapes! Pick large frame like the size of 11x14 inches, 16x20 inches, or 18x20 inches. Larger sizes look more dramatic.
Using only felt, buttons, and thread I hand sewed this Christmas wall hanging while watching TV at night!
Use decorative edge scissors or pinking shears to cut around edge of fabric. Glue to center of craft foam or construction paper. Glue ribbon under each corner of fabric for hanger.
Looking for instructions for how to make handmade wall hanging or craft.

What kind of wall hanging were you looking for? There are quilts, crafty with felt, macrame, crocheted. What season if any? What room? It depends on what you are looking for.
I bought a piece of material at WalMart that has the 23rd Psalm on it. The piece measures 33 inches wide by 42 inches long. I want to make a wall hanging out of it but I am not sure how. What I would really like to do is to stretch it across and tack it to the frame so it is tight and the words and the picture stand out. I know that if I could do this it would make a beautiful, but inexpensive wall hanging. Has anybody out there ever done this? Would you share your method with me?

There is an article in this months issue of Better Homes and Gardens on how to do just that. They took a piece of material and a piece of plywood and just pulled the material tight and used a staple gun to staple the material to the back of the plywood. They folded down the corners, kind-of like wrapping a present. It looked really nice even w/ out a frame around it. (05/25/2005)
I've made fabric wall hangings by placing dowels through pockets, made like you would curtains. The bottom dowel weights the fabric to stretch it. Tassels can be placed on the corners, and a piece of silky braid tied loosely at the two top corners will provide something to hang it. Good luck with whichever method you choose. It sounds lovely.

You can get wood stretcher bars like used in artist canvases from any art supplier in almost every size. Try the Dick Blick advertisement in this newsletter. Simply put them together (they interlock at the corners) and staple or tack the edge of the material to the back of the stretcher bars neatly. Good luck! sounds like it would make up lovely.

I am thinking that it is poly/cotton blend.So you need some wonder under-the stiff white stuff you can put on the back to make it not be so flimsy. Cut the wonder under the same size as the Psalm fabric.Choose a solid color same size as the Psalm fabric.By putting the wonder under between the Psalm fabric and the solid color and fold the edges down and stitch down all but the top edges. Get a dowel rod and cut it the same size as the fabric at the top of the hanging,leaving an inch on either side. Fold the top of the fabric over the dowel rod and stitch it down. Tie colorful cord or heavy rope-like twine on the dowel rod,and hang from the middle.
Hope this makes sense.
