Sisters, we know you want a beautiful and spacious bulletin boards for Ramadhaan. We also know you don’t want to spend a lot of money. We have a solution that we think you will love!
Have you ever heard of a fabric wall? Well you have now!
A fabric wall is just what it sounds like: a wall covered in fabric! But how?
It’s easier and cheaper than you think! And the idea works great for those who are renting. There’s no permanent damage to the wall; it removes easily.
How to Attach Fabric to a Wall Using Liquid Starch
- lightweight fabric in a pattern and color scheme you love; a sheet will work.
- undiluted fabric starch such as Sta Flo
- sponge or paint roller
- large container
- Wash the fabric. Dry and iron it out.
- In the meantime, measure the area you want to install the fabric. Add about 2 inches to this measurement.
- Tape off this section of the wall so you will know where to place your fabric. Wash down this section of the wall so the fabric will have a clean surface to stick to.
- Cut your fabric to the dimensions of your measurement in step 2.
- Pour starch into a clean container. Cover the section of the wall you will be covering with undiluted liquid starch. Use a sponge or paint roller.
- Place the fabric onto the area where you applied the starch. Move it around to get the placement right.
- Starting at the top and working your way down, apply starch to the fabric. Smooth out any air bubbles with a paintbrush or your fingers.
- Allow fabric to dry before using.
How To Remove Fabric Wall
Peel up a corner of the fabric. Use it to gently peel the remaining fabric from the wall. If it does not come off easily, use a wet sponge or rag to dampen the fabric a bit. Continue to wet and peel.
Create a border all the way around and you’re bulletin board is set! For some creative border ideas, try this link — Creative Bulletin Board Borders and Trim.
To hang items on the board, use single-sided or double-sided tape.
