Felt Flower Wall Art

Hi there!  Today I'll be showing you how to make this adorable wall art. 

You will need the following supplies:

- 12x12 Canvas Board
- 12x12 sheet of scrapbook paper, any design
- 12x12 frame
- 2 sheets of 9x12 felt in a color that compliments the scrapbook paper
- Hot glue gun
- Mod Podge

First, use Mod Podge (either matte or glossy) to adhere the scrapbook paper to the canvas board. 

Next, cut one sheet of felt into 9 equal pieces measuring 3"x4".  It's easiest to fold the felt in thirds then cut at the creases, Then fold each of those pieces in thirds and do the same.  Cut the 2nd piece of felt into 12 equal pieces measuring 3"x3". 

Starting with the bigger felt pieces, fold the bottoms into a W and put glue in the creases.

Next, round off the corners to form a petal.

Do this for all 9 pieces.  Place them in a circle on your canvas board with the glued part facing inwards and glue them down.

Now glue the bottoms of your 3"x3" pieces and round the corners.  Set 3 aside and place the other 9 over your first layer.  Glue them down.

Place the other 3 inside the hole in the middle of your flower and fold them outward. Now place your canvas in the 12x12 frame. 

These look cute in a nursery but are also sophisticated enough to hang anywhere in your house.

There you have it and until next time, happy crafting!
