I love the Dollar Tree. I have found so many supplies there for crafts, activities and home décor. And of course, you can’t beat the price! Everything is one buckaroo!

Anyway, this project today uses a foam board as DIY wall art. It’s such an affordable way to make a big impact in your space. If you have some fabric remnants in your collection that you could use for this project, then this project will wind up costing you $1 – the cost of the foam board. If you need to buy the fabric to cover the board, then you might spend between $5 and $10 total! Still a great value!

The first variation of this project uses only one piece of foam board and enough fabric to cover it.

Simply use a heavy-duty staple gun to adhere the fabric to the back of the board. Make sure to pull the fabric taut as you staple around the perimeter of the board.

In order to hang it up on the wall, I simply nailed it in 6 places: all four corners and two more at the midpoints of the long edges. It’s been holding up really well and the nails are practically invisible!

I love the big impact on the wall. Here it is in our hallway.

This next variation on the same project uses the same basic supplies: foam board and fabric. I also incorporate a square wall art piece I found in the clearance section of Hobby Lobby. I picked it up for under $5, as it may be slightly imperfect, but I honestly can’t tell.

By using the fabric and foam board to enhance this art piece, I make a much nicer impact on the wall.

And since the fabric choice complements the accent wall color perfectly, the overall effect is quite pleasing!
