zebra "headboard"

I made this very easy and inexpensive zebra wall hanging for my daughter's bedroom.  Of course it is not a real headboard, but it fills the spot above her double bed.

I just purchased two 24 X 30 canvases and some plush zebra fabric.  I placed the two canvases so that together they measured 24 x 60.  I stapled the fabric to the canvases and hung the project on four nails.  It is very light weight.

Easy Peasy.

Please visit my last post here.  I need some opinions on which rug to buy :).

  2. This is lovely! Thanks for joining us at the Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop :)

  3. Hi Eilis, Oh how easy you made that headboard sound. I love it and might have to copy it. I was slow getting into animal print and now, I wear it and buy it for home and clothes. No one is more surprised about that than I am! I will follow all who follow me. Let's get acquainted. Thanks, Helen

  4. What a great idea! So adorable and I love Zebra! Great job! Very creative!
    PS Please come show this off at my place next Wednesday if you can! You could win a $5 Starbucks card!

  5. It's zebra, and what a perfect touch for above her bed!!

  6. Oh what fun! And you can just change out the fabric when you are ready for a change. Well done!

  7. Love it! I did something similiar a while back, but used wrapping paper on canvas for cheap art in a pre-teen room. We love zebra at our house! I am a new follower.

  8. What a neat idea to use canvases that way! I wouldn't have thought to do that, and they are always on sale at Michaels. Hmmmm... now my wheels are turning. Thanks for linking up to Refresh Your Nest Friday!
