Fabric & Paper Projects

Use fabric and paper to transform your home with budget-savvy wall art, furniture makeovers, and home accents. Fast fabric facelifts could be just the thing to update your space on a budget (and several use less than 1 yard of fabric). We have project ideas for every sewing and paper-crafting skill level and comfort zone -- we even have no-sew fabric projects! Learn to upholster a chair or couch, re-cover a headboard, create budget-friendly wall art, and sew a pretty pouf -- and discover many other projects featuring step-by-step instructions and free downloadable patterns. Start with these fun, easy ideas, then customize the colors and patterns to coordinate with your home's style. Rethink and repurpose ready-made fabric items such as flat sheets, dish towels, T-shirts, and curtain panels, and follow our steps to personalize them with fabric stamping, stenciling, and sewing techniques. Want to try something new? See our guide to felting, and create cozy crafts projects perfect for any space in your home. Check out our ideas for homemade paper projects, papier-mache accents, and even fun paper wall art projects.
