grain sack head board made from canvas pictures

                                                   diy grain sack headboard tutorial

 


 first get your canvas pictures and place some stuffing on top of it evenly i used stuffing from a pillow.
 then place some batting over the top. i used a roll christmas snow blanket which is the same as batting just cheaper.

 turn over and tuck the batting under the frame using something to push it under.
 then place it on top of fabric and cut around it leaving enough to tuck under the frame. now do the same as the batting, tuck it under ensuring that its pulled tight
 tuck all the fabric underneath like the picture below
 now the main part is done
 then i got some vintage buttons, and used a large needle and embroidery thread and stitched them on pulling the thread tight.
 then i hung them above the bed to look like a head board

  2. Stopping by from "just a housewife." I love these "stuffed canvases" I was already thinking of about 20 more uses for them. I am pinning them! Absolutely brilliant!
