Do you have a kid who is crazy about Minecraft or vintage Super Mario Brothers? Then I’ve got the perfect easy Pixel Wall Art tutorial for you! You can recreate any 8-bit graphic but for the purpose of this tutorial, I’ll be making a rainbow pixel heart. Let’s get started!

Easy Pixel Wall Art
Step One. The super soft Cuddle Cakes pack comes with two of each color. Depending on your design, cut each 10″ square in fours until you have the appropriate amount of squares.
Step Five. Because I was working with a Cuddle Cake pack, I had just enough to cover just the front. If you have extra fabric to work with, you can always make the fabric squares on the edge of your design larger so that they can cover the sides and reach the back. If not, just use a little hot glue to attach ribbon to the edges. Remove backing and fold excess ribbon over.
Tada! All you have to do now is stick to a wall and enjoy! So easy, right? If your kids are old enough, you could even have them work on the design first on grid paper and then transfer it to the Foamology grid. It comes in tons of different sizes and you could even just stick a few together if you can’t find the right dimensions. I hope you have fun with this idea and I’d love to see what you make!
I created this project to take part in The Great Cuddle Cake Challenge!
