I recently finished a felt leaves wall décor and it is now happily hanging by the kitchen table. Lately, I’ve been doing diys with felt because it is such a fun and easy material to work with.
Too bad I couldn’t get anymore colors. When I dropped by the dollar store near my home, they still haven’t replenished their stock of felt so I’m stuck with the colors I have in my supply. Well, they’re not too shabby actually. In fact, I think this wall décor turned out great.
Learn how to make one for your wall, here are the…
Long and sturdy twig or dowel
There were two possible twigs I found from the front yard.
I decided to go with the very uneven one and I just broke off some parts of it.
I drew 4 kinds of leaves so I could make them into a template for the felt. You can look for images of leaves online and print out what appeals to you.
Cut out the leaves and trace them onto the felt.
Cut out the leaves outline. I used 4 colors of felt and used 4 types of leaves so I traced one of each in each color. You can increase or decrease the number depending on how you want it.
Get some acrylic paint. Any color will do so long as it contrasts with the color of the felt. I used yellow for the brown and dark green felt and robin egg blue for the purple and turquoise felt colors. Paint veins on the leaves.
While the paint is drying, you can move on to tie some strings on the twig. I used sisal.
Cut the sisal string. I cut mine about 45 inches. Fold that in half and loop it around the twig.
Tie a knot after looping around the twig.
You will need to cut 4 pcs of that length.
Try to lay out the placement of the leaves on the string. Do not glue them yet but make sure you know the spots where you want each leaf to be.
Use hot glue to attach the each felt leaf onto the string.
After gluing all the leaves, string some beads at the ends of each string and tie a knot. The beads will put some weight so the string can hang a bit straighter.
Now all you have to do is hang this felt leaves wall décor on any wall in your home to spiff it up.
You can totally rock this!
