Collect Materials To Make The DIY Tapestry:
When you are collecting the materials you need, take into consideration the color palette as well. Since with this, you will be making different shapes on your tapestry. Also, consider the shapes of your tapestry. But whatever style you choose, always keep in mind that it complements your space and décor. Materials that you need are:
Different and complementary color felts. For the base, you need a thick base. Something like a canvas or duck cloth. Glue sticks. Cotton cord and a wooden dowel, glue gun and scissors.
Cut The Fabric Base And The Felt Shapes For A DIY Tapestry:
First, decide the size of the tapestry that you want to make. If you have a small space then you will have to make a small tapestry. Whereas if you have a big space then a big tapestry will be the best for it, then cut the thick fabric base to the size you want. When you cut the base make sure that the width is not wider than the dowel’s length. Since you will use the dowel for hanging your tapestry.
Cut the shapes out of your felt, after you have decided the style and shape. When you cut and make the felt shapes, try to keep the same shapes that you cut from each color. This will help you make a good mix for your base. Also, they should have the same number of pieces.
Put Your Cut Felt Shapes:
Start to arrange the cut felt shapes to make a layout. Put the base of the fabric flat. You can use any color, scale, and proximity.
After laying the felt shapes now stick them on the base. Continue doing so till all the shapes have been glued. All of them are in place.
Now at the top of the tapestry put a thin line of glue on the top back of the fabric side. Put the dowel on the glue. Then put the next line of the fabric where the dowel is placed, this should be a clean front of the tapestry where the dowel is placed. Now cut the cotton cord length. Tie it on each dowel end, which is outside the fabric edge. Your DIY tapestry is ready. Hang it wherever you want.
