Yesterday I was contacted by Brandi, a very sweet reader, and she wanted to know if I could share where I got the cupcake art that was on the wall in my daughter's bedroom in the last post. Sure thing! The frame was an Ikea clearance item that I spray painted pink, and the cupcake was just felt "art" (in the very loosest sense of the term) that I made on a whim one day.
It's actually not my favorite picture....something about the colors seems wrong. But I made another mini version last night to show you how, and I like it much better!
Start out by drawing a picture or printing out some clipart...
Cut out each section of your clipart separately, and use them as patterns to cut out your felt.
Cut yarn or a very narrow ribbon to the length of your "wrapper" piece, and glue on with fabric glue, or hot glue.
Cut out a piece of felt the same size as your frame backing, and glue all your little felt pieces on where you want them! Use more ribbon, lace, and buttons to embellish!
