Materials needed for your DIY Felt Wall Art
- A Multi-Color pack of Felt or buy individual sheets at somewhere like WalMart and Hobby Lobby
- ModPodge Glue
- An Acrylic Paint Set, I love these
- A large, blank Canvas
Steps to Make the DIY Felt Wall Art
- Plan your whole canvas before starting. Pick paint and felt colors that work together. Decide what parts will be felt and find a pattern online. Or draw a pattern, if you are one of those lucky talented people!
- Cut up your pattern into color blocks that will look good. Remember to have fun with it and play around. Felt is pretty cheap, so it’s OK to make a few mistakes and changes.
- Then, start by painting the whole canvas with your base color.
- Cut up and assemble the felt pieces on top of the canvas, without gluing. This will help you scale the rest of the painted items on the canvas.
- Paint the rest of the design on the canvas.
- Once dry, glue your felt pieces in place. If you’d like, you can use a bottom piece of felt to hold the smaller pieces together. Then glue that onto the canvas.
- Now, pat yourself on the back. You’re an artist!
- I’d love to see what you’ve done. Post a picture to your Facebook or Instagram accounts and tag Abbotts At Home so I can see your new art!
