Kinda Sorta… Felt Art DIY

Not to long ago I saw this adorable DIY on Brit+Co. It seemed super quick, cute and easy, so I decided to make my own version for my weekly Sunday Night DIY. $15 and an hour and a half later, I had a brand new piece of art for my living room wall! Read below to see how I did this DIY:

What You’ll Need:

1) Felt in various colors ($.50 per sheet at Hobby Lobby)

2) 4 pieces of thin wood or canvas (12×12 for $3.99 at Hobby Lobby)

3) Pushpins

4) Scissors

5) Hot Glue Gun

6) Printed letter template (I chose to use 300pt font)

Step 2: Use pushpins to attach the letters to the pieces of felt. Make sure to use multiple points of attachment to keep the paper and felt from moving while you cut the letters out.
