Fabric Leaf Picture Tutorial

fabric leaf picture tutorial muslim blog

I made this artwork that I have framed and now have hanging in my living room. I was inspired to do this after seeing a photograph on Pinterest of one similar made with a canvas.  I do like to give credit when I can so below is the photograph that inspired my artwork. Here is the link:ellenscreativepassage


This was quite an easy project and didn't take very long to do.  I already had the frame and the black card was from inside the original frame which was a real bonus. This whole project didn't cost me any money as I already had the materials in the house!

Items needed:

  • Large Card and frame to fit
  • Various fabric designs
  • Glue
  • scissors

Step 1: Cut out a fabric circle shape
Step 2: Cut out various leaf shapes (I used freehand for different shapes of leaves)
Step 3: Lay out the fabric leaves onto the card until you find the desired look
Step 4: When happy with layout start gluing each piece to the card (I started in the centre and worked my way out)
Step 5:Trim the edges and place card into a frame and Hang on your wall
