Wall Dots

This is an super easy way to decorate a blank wall in your home...and it seriously took me like 10 minutes to make all three!

The first step is to cut out circles from a cardboard box {whatever size you like.}Or use cake circles.

Next, trace the circle onto your chosen fabric leaving about 1 inch extra around the actual cardboard circle.
Using needle and thread make stitches around the circle {I do big stitches, you cover more area quicker and stitching size doesnt matter.}

After you go around the entire circle, center your cardboard and pull the thread so that it tightens around the cardboard making a nice fabric cover.

Double knot the two pieces of thread and its ready for the final step!

Using mounting tabs that I purchased at the $1 store {they are basically foam squares that are sticky on both sides} I stuck it on the back of the cardboard and then peeled the other side and stuck it directly to the wall.

Here is the finished product above my kitchen sink:

And in my Mother's dining room:
Note- Her 7 took a little bit longer than my 3 but, not much:)
Happy Crafting!
