power tool free method:

If you don't have a drill or kreg jig to make pocket holes, you can attach the edges of your frame using staples and wood glue.

Just line up your boards square, add a generous amount wood glue to the edges, then add 3-4 staples across the joint of the board so that one side of the staple goes into each piece of wood.

optional — use clamps to keep the joint in place while you staple, you can also have a friend hold the wood so it doesn't move

Leave your frame on a flat surface until the wood glue is fully dry.

Active Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 1 hour
Difficulty: Beginner
Estimated Cost: $17.71

You can DIY huge canvas art for cheap to uplevel your space and even fill a huge blank space on your wall with 1 statement piece.


  1. Pick your art (shower curtain) — fabric or cloth shower curtains work best
  2. optional: add texture with chunky yarn embroidery — embroider parts of the shower curtain with chunky yarn for added 3D texture
  3. Build a frame — using 1 in. x 2in. lumber build a large square frame that's about 2 inches smaller than your shower curtain on all sides. Attach with pocket holes and wood glue
  4. Stretch the canvas — Lay your shower curtain face down with the frame on top. Start on one side, wrapping the fabric around the frame and securing at the back with a staple. Work your way from the middle towards the edges. Once one side is complete, move on to the opposite side and then the adjacent sides.
  5. Hang it up — you can either hang it on the wall with 3 nails across the top that the canvas will rest level on top of, or secure by adding a 2" brad nail through each corner and into the wall
