Fabric panel as DIY artwork for a kid's room

Fabric panel artRob made some beautiful fabric-panel art for his son's room:

Your post about DIY artwork for a kid's room inspired us to do something creative (and easy for us craft-challenged folks) with a cool panel of fabric that we had found recently that tied in so nicely with the jungle animal theme that we're putting together for our child's room.

We bought pairs of 32" and 40" canvas stretchers at Hobby Lobby, glued them together, and stapled the fabric panel atop the framework.  Nothing fancy, but a very low-cost way to add a large decorative piece to an otherwise bare wall.
