Felt Crafts - Versatile and Fun
Fabulous Felt Crafts - Flowers and More
I've completed many fun craft projects using felt. It's a very versatile material. Felt comes in a wide variety of colors and can be used to make a whimsical and welcoming felt flower arrangement like the one pictured or any of the other projects on this page.
Shown in the picture, I hot glued felt to the tip of these found sticks, wound green florist tape at the bottom to hide any glue, secured a few old buttons in the center of some and displayed them in a milkglass vase. This felt craft won't lose it's bloom anytime soon.
Felt Crafts - Petal Pillow
The trick to making felt crafts like this charming pillow is to purchase good quality felt off the bolt. This type of felt differs from the standard felt sheets found in hobby stores in that this felt is thicker and much stronger. Using this type ofcreates a much fluffier appearance to the petals on the pillow cover. felt
