Sometimes, all you need to liven up a plain wall is a little bit of color. That's why we love this Craft Of The Day. You can use leftover scraps of fabric to make this bright and bold wall frame, which will look cheerful hanging in a hallway or kid's room. We like the chevron pattern painted on this example, but you can draw any design you like. Not only is it an easy, low-cost way to dress up a wall, it's a project that should only take you a few minutes to do. Keep reading for the how-to.
