After a few days of being under the weather, a beautiful no-sew felt flower was just what I needed to brighten my week. This project is very “DO-able” even for a crafting novice. It’s also very inexpensive. All you need is a little bit of time. For me it was 2 nap times (thankfully Mr. Jake took a two hour nap the last two days). As a side note I should let you know that I’m a pretty slow crafter so you may be able to finish it faster.
I recreated this sweet design after I stumbled upon the beautiful work of Lindsay from Pen & Paint while on Instagram the other day. As I looked through pictures of her drawings and paintings, marveling at her talent and creativity, I was particularly drawn to an image of a sweet little felt flower. I had to have one for myself.
Here’s what you need to recreate this fun DIY wall art project:
Hot glue gun
8 inch embroidery hoop
Step 1: Cover your embroidery hoop with fabric and tighten. Cut excess fabric, leaving about 1/2 an inch of fabric (you’ll glue this down at the end).
Step 2. Cut your first row of petals. My petals were about 1″ wide x 1.5″ tall. I had 17 total.
Step 3. Cut the remaining rows of petals. I ended up having 8 rows and each one had 17 petals. Each new row of petals should be slightly smaller than the row before it.
Step 4. Once everything was cut, I laid it all out on the table in the same way I was going to assemble and glue it. Once I had it how I liked it, I took each petal, starting with the first row, and hot glued it down onto my embroidery hoop.
Step 5. Add a button or any fun round piece to cover up the middle.
Step 6. Finally, glue down the remaining fabric on the backside of the hoop.
Hope you enjoy your easy, no sew felt flower. It’s the perfect addition for any nursery, kids room or empty wall space. I think I might have to make a whole wall of these for my new craft room!
What do you get when you have more rocks than you know what to do with and a toddler who loves trains? You get colored choo-choo train rocks! When I first saw this idea on Etsy, at HappyEmotions store, I knew immediately that I had to make Jake a set. Not only are train rocks fun, easy and…
I can’t believe my little baby boy is 2. I know one day I’ll look back on these pictures and think that he looked so young. But right now it feels like he became a 2 year old overnight. There’s no perfect phrase or set of words to describe how much Jake has changed my…
One of my favorite tutorials from my book, Rock Art Handbook, is how to decoupage rocks with napkins. The finished decoupaged rocks are perfect for beautiful table settings and look great on display throughout your home. The best part is that you can make them throughout the year for different holidays using holiday themed napkins….
I have a thing for jars! I can’t get enough of them and use them all over my craft room to hold supplies, markers, and embellishments. And it’s SO easy to make these jars cute. I promise this is such an easy mason jar DIY. I’ve figured out the best way to paint mason jars and, believe me, there are a lot of tutorials that I’ve tried that do not work.
If you want to create a little magic with your art, you need to try this watercolor with markers technique using watercolor resist paper. This is also a wonderful activity for children. I’ve done it in my son’s class for several different projects and it’s always a huge hit with the kids. See the Mother’s…
