Napkins and table runners
Give your table an elegant and personalised look with fabric napkins. It may be much easier to go for paper napkins, but they are so ordinary. You can find them anywhere. To give your table a special touch, make your fabric napkins. Hand decorating them would make them even more attractive. You can do the same for your table runner. It makes your table look classy and is a perfect combination with your napkins.
Add colour and beauty to a lampshade
If you have a plain-looking lampshade that you want to upgrade, choose a pretty fabric, and get to work. All you need is your glue gun, a pair of scissors, and enough material in your favourite pattern and colour to cover up your lampshade. Use a pencil to make a pattern around your lampshade, and cut along the traced areas. Use the glue gun to attach the fabric to the lampshade and you have a completed project that will look awesome in your home.
Decorate your tray
Here is another item that you have at home that you can upgrade. You don’t need a lot of fabric for this project, but it will definitely give a fresh new look to your ordinary tray. Choose a fabric with floral patterns or geometric designs and make your tray a decorative piece your guests will admire.
Fabric covered notebooks
Another DIY project you could try with fabric is using them to cover diaries, journals, or even your favourite books. Your teenage daughter will love to help you out with this. Her notebooks will look different from all the rest. Pick out your materials using different types of fabric and come up with your own design. You can even make them as presents for special occasions or simple tokens.
Decorate your walls
An empty wall is the perfect spot for fabric decor. The possibilities are endless when it comes to the choice of designs and colours. Try framing your preferred material or create a wall hanging to add character to any room of your home.
There are so many ideas of fabric DIY projects that you can try. Take a look around your home and see what you can come up with to enhance the atmosphere and reflect your personality. When it comes to gifts, be creative, and make them yourself. You will find a sense of fulfilment from the work you complete.
