One of my favorite types of projects to make has always been wall hangings. I don't know why, but adding a piece of colorful ''artwork'' to a plain wall is pretty exciting to me. To be honest. I'm one of those people who would rather decorate a plain white wall than get out all the supplies to actually paint the wall a certain color. Needless to say, my love of wall art, gallery walls and wall hangings has grown in the past couple of years!
I think one reason why I love making wall hangings is because there an easy project for beginning crafters and can be customized to fit anyone's style. For example, today's project is a motivational wall hanging! Now motivational wall hangings are nothing new but I think there a perfect addition to any space whether your living in a dorm room or sitting in your grown up office. Cause let's be honest, we all need some positive encouragement and motivation every now and then!
The wall hanging I made is design to have a phrase, quote or saying in big, bold letters which you can see and then feel instantly motivated by. In this case I used the phrase '''Do What You Love''' because that holds a special place in my heart. However you could use any phrase that motivates you!
This really goes back to my original thought about customizing. For this particular project, you can use the tutorial as a guide and change the color scheme, embellishments and overall look to fit your style. I encourage you to make your own version of this wall hanging that will both inspire and motivate you!
With that being said, the felt sizes that I give in this tutorial are design more for short 4- 5 word phrases or quotes. However you can adjust the felt sizes or use smaller felt letters to accommodate a longer phrase or quote that you may want to use.
