I created a gorgeous piece of wall art for the studio wall outside in my yard. Using three wooden boxes, a couple foam blocks and a collection of my new DIY project pieces, I made something that is totally a fabulous look for today, yet has a super-cute crafty twist. And, by the way, these are quite weather resistant.
In her tutorial, this gal with Apostrophe S used a selection of gorgeous felts in a variety of great colors which compliment one another beautifully. Don’t be afraid to explore online and in craft stores for great felts that go well together – the quality of the material you use really goes towards achieving a great finished product so take the time to chose gorgeous felts.
Currently there’s a popular succulent trend, packed with stunning wool-blend felt succulents. They’re an easy-to-make array of wool-blend felt forms. Then arrange them in a wood planter box you’ll stain with a neutral, sun-weathered treatment. Make this as a wonderful gift to give, or keep it for your self! Bring this piece of colorful desert style to your favorite space—display flat as a table garden, or vertical as a trendy wall garden.
