Felt Word Art

1 - DIY Felt Word Art by Brave New HomeI love working with felt.  It’s one of the unsung heroes of the crafting world.  The fact that it costs about ten cents a sheet may have something to do with it.2 - materials for felt word artFor this project I used a frame whose glass I accidentally busted trying to fit a bunch of frames from our move into a box.  I wanted to do something that would benefit from not being behind a sheet of glass.  I used my wood grain contact paper to recover my frame.3 - cutting letters out of feltI free-handed the letters backwards so the pen marks wouldn’t show up on the finished letters.4 - arranging felt lettersI chose this song lyric from an Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros song (side note: I have my guesses why Jade got kicked out of the band but who can replace that voice?).5 - arranging felt letters in frameAs you can see, I took some creative license with spelling and separating words.  It’s art, right?6 - gluing felt letters to posterboardThen I sparingly used some white glue to attach my felt letters to some white poster board. 7 - home is wherever im with you felt word art with cactusThis piece reads a lot better in person.  I have to figure out how to photograph it better.8 - home is wherever im with you felt word art side viewThe uncovered dimension of the felt helps add to the playfulness. 9 - home is wherever im with you felt word art side view cactus2The Hubs definitely was the inspiration for this piece though sometimes I feel like I should swap this piece out for one that says, Home is wherever I’m waiting for you, haha.10 - home is wherever im with you felt word artI haven’t found a permanent home for this piece yet but it makes me smile every time I pass by it.  And if the song gets stuck in my head, that’s okay, too.
