DIY FELT WALL HANGING

New Wool Felt and Cork Wall Coverings from Submaterial. Image via Design Milk 

Hello lovely people

How beautiful is this wallpapered felt wall by Submaterial ? I would totally use this wall as a feature in my home in a heartbeat… Would you? I particularly love that felt is a versatile fabric and is perfect for wall coverings, soft furnishings (like my round cushion tutorial) and wall hangings. I adore that its textural effect can be so beautifully subtle or a dramatic with a 3D edge.

I have been so inspired by this fabric of late that I have put together an easy felt wall-hanging tutorial for you below; I do hope that you’re feeling the crafty bug as they are super easy to do!

FELT ART WALL-HANGING TUTORIAL

REQUIREMENTS

  • Felt Fabric or Felt Placemats (available art stores or Interior decor shops)
  • Dowel Wood
  • Drill and Saw
  • Twine
  • Sewing Machine, Hand Sew or Glue Gun
  • Scissors

METHOD 

  • Decide on shape and size for your wall-hanging
  • Cut it out; remember to allow a 6cm hem at the top (this will be where you will thread your dowel through.)
  • Sew, hand-sew or glue seam over 3cm.
  • Grab your dowel, measure the length at least 3cm longer than your wall-hanging.
  • Using your saw, cut your dowel length
  • Using your drill, drill a hole 1cm in from either end of your dowel
  • Thread your dowel through your seam
  • Thread Twine through each hole and double knot at each end.

Emma – A stylist and Insta friend of mine also made this sweet art work by framing a felt placemat. Such a fabulous and simple idea, right? You can follow her on Instagram right here.

  1. That wall is just incredible, I couldn’t help but touch it. Unfortunately I think the kids wouldn’t be able to help themselves either and I cant imagine it is easy to clean sticky handprints off of. Or dog fluff. Hmm. Looks awesome though!
