Polka Dot Modern Wall Art

The Polka Dot wall art is so simple to make and just so cute!!  I love modern decor and the dots, but of course you could use any pattern and color you prefer.  I think these are just simply adorable!  I may have to make a trip to the craft store soon.

Materials:

• 1 Sheet STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam: 1″ x 12″ x 36″
• 3 cloth napkins, 20″ x 20″
• Serrated knife and old candle; or, dental floss
• Thick, white craft glue
• Scissors
• Sharp pencil
• Ruler
• Straight pins
• 3 Sawtooth picture hangers

Instructions:

1.Using ruler and pencil, score foam sheet to create three, 12″ x 12″ squares. Wax serrated knife with an old candle. Holding foam sheet firmly on a flat surface, extend one end and cut across score line, using knife like a saw. Or, try dental floss: stand the sheet on its edge, and hold a 20″ length of dental floss along the scored line, positioning one hand at the bottom of the board and the other at the top; draw the dental floss down through the foam sheet along the scored line.

2.Spread white craft glue on foam square. Center napkin over square and glue in place; carefully smooth fabric over edges, folding fabric neatly at corners and pin or glue to the back of foam square. Trim excess fabric. Repeat with remaining napkins and foam squares.

3.Glue sawtooth picture hanger to back. For additional hold, insert and glue two straight pins through holes in sawtooth picture hanger.

4.Let dry before hanging.
