45 Fun and Easy Felt Craft Ideas
Of all crafts, I think that felt crafts have to be one of the easiest and most economical to make. Felt is an inexpensive craft supply, and yet you can make really outstanding projects with it. Felt is the perfect option, when it comes to kids crafts, because many of the felt crafts can be glued instead of sewn.
In my Google search I looked for felt crafts that displayed a nice picture of the project and directions for making the craft. In this article I am sharing the craft sites that answered those criteria.
To make the felt owls shown above, go to Juicy Bits for the instructions.
