10 Inspirational Drop Cloth Projects

Get inspired by so many different projects made with inexpensive drop cloth canvas! It’s a great way to decorate on a budget!

If you’ve been around the DIY blogging community more than a week, then you’ve definitely seen drop cloths used in all sorts of fun new ways. I mean, crafty women have been going to big box hardware stores for decades, purchasing cheap canvas drop cloths and turning them into beautiful creations. Decades, people. {OK, well maybe not decades, but drop cloths have been trendy for a while now.}

Faux grain sack, ruffled, monogrammed, stenciled – you name it and it can be done with a drop cloth. So, I thought I’d round up a few of my favorite ways to use a drop cloth and share them with you today!

  9. I love drop cloth! I used it to cover the big pillows we use in our master bedroom instead of a headboard. I’ve also used it for embroidery projects.

  10. I’m going to have to go back to pin every one you featured. I’ve been wanting to make drop cloth curtains for our bedroom, stencil them. Since my computer/router decided it was going to be sick $200 worth I’ll have to wait now but am chomping at the bit to make so many things with them. Want to make pillow covers to stencil, table runners to stencil and of course the curtains. Guess they’ll all have to wait til after first of year but watch out for me then. We have a new True Value close to our house so I won’t even have to go too far to get the cloths. Loved this post, getting so many ideas in one place.

  11. We love this post! We love drop cloths and are right now getting ready to try the slip cover for a sofa and love seat. We have done a chair slipcover, made throw pillows, stockings for Christmas, Roses for a lampshade and an awesome tent and dust ruffle for a little boy’s adventure themed room. Thank you for some other great ideas! Oh, we found you over at the Tasteful Tuesday Party

  12. Drop cloth and burlap are my favorite materials to work with!! I feel like I”m pulling something over on the decorating gods when I use drop cloths for anything other than to catch paint! Haha I would love it you shared your drop cloth round up with us this week at the Link it or Lump it Link party!

  13. Thanks for sharing all these great ideas for drop cloths! My next project is to make a slip cover for my couch with drop cloth!

    1. Wow! I’m impressed. I would be so intimidated by a project of that size with that much sewing!! But it can be done and I think it looks awesome. 🙂

  14. What an amazing collection! Thanks so much for including my table runner Laura:) Have a great weekend!!

  15. Great ideas!!! I plan to make a runner, and possibly a rug for my dining area! Drop cloths rock. 🙂

  16. Thanks for featuring my valance and my seat cushions, Laura! I just love dropcloth decorating–I might have to try those cute pumpkins for Thanksgiving!

  17. I love all the ideas, but I think the painted drop cloth curtains are my favorite! I am presently working on my twin girls’ “big girl” bedroom and have been trying to think of a thrifty, DIY curtain solution. I think I may have found a winner. Thanks so much for the inspiration!

  18. Thank you so much for including my drop cloth wreath! It was such a awesome surprise to see it here!
