One trick of the trade that I've seen a lot of designers do, is to take art canvases, and cover them with fabric. This is so inexpensive and cute!!!! Since I am not an incredible artist, I'd rather cover up a canvas with cute fabric instead of trying to paint a picture. You can also use a solid piece of plywood and cover it with fabric too, if you have wood scraps laying around in your garage.

The best way to adhere the fabric is to use a glue gun or staple gun on the backside of the wood or canvas.

Some of my favorite fabrics are from Designers: Amy Butler, Heather Bailey, and Joel Dewberry. Their coordinating collections make it easy to combine fabrics and get a cohesive look.
