Want some inexpensive art for your home? You can actually make large scale DIY farmhouse wall art with iron-on and your Cricut or Silhouette machine. The secret is the magnetic poster hangers that make this project so easy to make. So grab a few of those and use a version of this art is every room of your home!
DIY farmhouse wall art supplies:
- Darice Unfinished Wood Poster Hangers
- White Fabric
- Wood Stain
- Black Heat Transfer Vinyl
- Farmhouse Art SVG File (click here to download)
- Die Cutting Machine
- Iron or Heat Press
Start by staining the poster hangers. They are each 4 pieces (2 for the top and 2 for the bottom). They are magnetized and will hold together when placed properly. Paint on the stain, allow to sit a few minutes, then wipe away the excess with a rag. Allow the pieces to dry completely before continuing.
While your pieces dry, you can cut your art from the heat transfer vinyl. Download the SVG file and upload to the software for your craft cutting machine. Then size the file to fit your farmhouse art. I sized mine slightly smaller than my 24 inch poster hangers and then as long as my mat for my cutting machine would allow. Then cut your file from the heat transfer vinyl. Be sure to mirror your image and cut with the shiny side down on the mat. Weed away the excess around your images as well as the centers of letters.
Then cut pieces of white fabric to larger than your heat transfer vinyl size but smaller than your 24 inch poster hanger. Add the vinyl to the white fabric with either an iron or heat press. Remember to leave plenty of room at the top and bottom for the poster hanger to be placed. Follow all instructions on the heat transfer vinyl you are using.
Once it is adhered, you can remove your carrier sheet.
Then just place the ends of your fabric inside your poster hanger. You can see the magnets in the image below.
Once you have the poster hanger on top and bottom, your DIY farmhouse wall art is ready to hang.
I liked my sides unfinished but you could sew them before completing your project.
Here I have made two farmhouse art files for you to choose from.
You can also create your own version within the software for your cutting machine. Imagine making this great large scale art for every room in your home!
