'Love' Felt Art

Today's DIY was for a guest post that I did over at Live.Laugh.Rowe last week, but I wanted to share it with you in case you missed it. It's super easy and barely costs a penny (ok, maybe a couple dollars!)


Supplies

8x10 Felt Sheet- I found mine at the Dollar Store -3 for a $1!
Scrapbooking paper
Letter Stencils-I used some Wooden Letters I found at the Dollar Store
Scissors
Frame- I used one I had laying around the house, I believe it's from IKEA

I used the word LOVE, and changed the 'O' to a heart. However any word would work! I didn't want the marker to show after I cut out the letter so I traced the letters backwards onto the felt sheet. I tried to use a marker that wasn't really dark or heavy as I didn't want it to show through once I flipped it over.

Cut out your letters carefully with scissors.

Flip the felt over and place it over top of your choice of printed scrapbooking paper.

Place into a frame and voila! Pretty Felt Word Art...there are so many possibilities with this!
