Stenciled Boho Wall Art

Today's project was inspired when I saw something similar at Marshalls. 

If you love the boho look, you're going to like this easy stenciled project. 

I knew it could easily be done at home for minimal cost. 

Take a look at this fun wall art project...

I began this project with 2 black KNOPPANG frames from Ikea.

The size you'll use is up to you, I just happened to have these from a garage sale which are 12" x 16".

painter's cloth fabric

I cut 2 pieces of painter's cloth fabric a few inches smaller than the glass of the frame.

I frayed the top and bottom of each fabric piece. 

I painted one piece of fabric black with a foam roller using Fusion Mineral Paint in Coal Black.

The foam roller, gloves, and a tray came in a set from Dollar Tree and worked great!

When the black paint dried, I used this fun stencil from Old Sign Stencils called Stitches.

I stenciled an off white color that matched the painter's cloth onto the black fabric.

Next, I used the Coal Black again to stencil on the unpainted drop cloth fabric.

This gave me a black on white, and white on black look.

I let the fabric art dry then sprayed the fabric with spray starch and ironed it flat using parchment paper.

By the way, the spray starch from Dollar Tree works better than the expensive brands! 

Lastly, I inserted the fabric into the frames with a white background.

These pictures came out looking just like the ones that inspired me!

The biggest challenge of this whole project was photographing the pictures without a glare!
