Felt is pretty awesome. It’s super cheap. Even when it is not on sale it’s 4 sheets for a dollar! Oh and I love that it comes in tons of colors! It’s easy to cut and hot glue holds it perfectly. I’m a big felt fan. So, when ForRent.com asked me to come up with a fun wall art idea for renters, felt filled the brain! I thought about my fun felt DIY wall art I made for our Florida apartment, but since I don’t like doing the exact same project twice, I crafted up a new, more awesome version, see:
The best part is the whole project costs $4 and I made it under 30 minutes. True! Here is the DIY wall art I made for our FL apartment hung in our new living room! See the 3 gray canvases? Pretty spunky, right?
Here’s what you need to make yourself some fancy felt wall art. Oh and the hot glue gun is not in this pic.
And I decided to use this handy dandy fabric cutter instead of scissors, like in the pic above. But, the wall art that is hanging on my wall was made entirely with scissors. So use what you’ve got on hand! I cut the felt into 1 in. strips, like so:

Seriously, it is that easy! Here’s the video and that Amber and I made for ForRent.com. You can see all the deets in action plus more tips for decorating and making the most of your rental!
