The best part about this project is that it does no damage to the fabric, and very little to the foam core board. If you get tired with these hangings, the fabric can be reused for other projects.
- 1/4 - 1 yard of fabric (depending on the size of your desired board)
- 1 piece of foam core board
- X-acto blade or box cutter
Measure out your foam core board and cut with an X-acto blade to the size you want. Cut your fabric to the size of the board, with a 1/2" to 1" margin. Alternatively, if your fabric has a particular design or image you would like to frame, you can cut the fabric first and then the foam core board to fit.
There are many ways you could mount these boards. For something invisible, you can sew a string across the back of the board, and hang with a nail like a traditional frame. I opted to use push pins on the top and bottom edges of my boards. If you decide to remove the fabric, the staples come out easily with the help of a flathead screwdriver or anything else small and flat to pry them out of the foam.
Here are some Echino boards I made for my bedroom. I also had some leftover from a Birch Fabrics quilt I'm working on, and used it to decorate the other half of my room and the living room.
