DIY wall decor

So I needed some "art" for our guest room, but I haven't found anything that would match the current decor so I decided to take matters into my own hands. I don't have before pictures of this one (somehow I deleted them... sorry!).

This is what I bought:
2 - 16" by 20" canvases (on sale 2 for $4 at Hobby Lobby!)
1 yard of fabric (also on sale)

What I had:
power stapler

What I did:
Stapled the fabric to the back of the canvas. That's it. It took maybe 5 minutes and it cost less than $10 :).I also put some fabric around a matte in a frame I had hanging in the bathroom to change things up a little bit. It's amazing what you can do with a little fabric and a Saturday morning :). I think I am going to use the left over fabric to make some fabric flowers. I see another DIY tutorial in the near future :).
