I’ve been doing a lot of organizing in the craft room lately. Like most DIYers, I get a little carried away with my fabric purchases. Lots of cutting, folding and purging later, I had my fabric closet organized better than my clothes closet. I even found pieces I had forgotten I had.
This is the way it turned out. I love it.
This is what I started with. Don’t judge me. I’m willing to bet many of my crafty friends can relate to this picture.
I used a cardboard form to fold my fabric for a custom fit in my closet. If you are interested in my technique, you can find the tutorial here.
A friend redid her ceilings and gave me the scrap acoustical tiles from the new install.
I wasn’t exactly sure what I would do with them, but possibilities started to form in my head. Googling acoustical ceiling tile crafts didn’t exactly give me a multitude of ideas. Actually, it gave me none. I was on my own. No problem. Thinking outside of the box is kinda my thing. 😉
The tiles were really easy to cut with a craft knife, but I went for the really, really, really easy cut and used a jig saw.
These Halloween “BOO” Tiles were made with fabric and heavyduty fusible web. Yes, I ironed them! Worked like a charm!

I cut this tile a little bigger and decoupaged book pages onto it. With the addition of a little paint to stain the pages, and a pearl paint finish, I thought it had a Parisian look. The sequins added the quirky bling I just had to have.
