Inspired by the famous cartoon Spongebob squarepants, I designed a cute porthole wall decor that will embellish and cutify your bedroom! This is a punch needle pattern, so make sure to have all the materials ready for it!
- Different colors of acrylic DK yarn: 4 shades of blue, pink, white and yellow
- a 3 mm punch needle
- monk cloth
- embroidery hoop or a punch needle frame
- felt fabric
- fabric glue and a glue gun
How to make this Spongebob Porthole Wall Decor
Once you have downloaded the PDF file, print the illustration pattern on a A4 paper. Take your monk cloth and stretch it around your hoop before tracing the design onto it. Help yourself with either a light tablet or use the daylight through a window of your house.
You can use a regular pencil for tracing, that’s what I personally used myself.
You may start punch needling once you have finished tracing. I recommend you to start with the flowers, make the contour of the flowers and then add the blue inside them. Continue with the ocean blue inside the middle circle.
Little tip: punch the flowers edges a second time after you finished the ocean, it will make the flowers pop out more.
Afterward, you will work the details first before filling the bigger parts. When you have finished your porthole, apply the fabric glue on the back to hold the yarns together and secure it. Next, cut the fabric around your porthole, leaving a 1 cm space, then give little cuts around the fabric. Glue each piece on the back of the porthole.
Cut a round the same diameter of your porthole, on your felt fabric, then glue the felt fabric on the back of the porthole to finish it.
Finally, you will just have to hang your porthole on your wall after that!
