Hi Everyone! This week’s blog is all about felt. Felt is one of my favorite fabrics because so much can be done with it so easily. This fabric does not fray; it is durable and lasts for quite a long time. As seen above felt comes in a rainbow of colors that can be turned into wonderful creations. I myself love turning sheets of felt into Christmas ornaments. I create Red Ribbon ornaments for Ooh! Aah! Jewelry.
With these ornaments and the vibrant felt I am able to create fun pieces that will stand out on a Christmas tree. I sew the ornaments but glue also works well with felt. This means crafters of all ages can have fun with felt and create Christmas decorations.
One DIY Christmas decoration that is kid friendly is to decorate Christmas trees. Simply cut out an outline of Christmas tree or snowman and let the kids decorate with them with anything from buttons and ribbon to other felt cutouts and sequins that can easily be glued to the felt. This will create a fun project that can be brought out form many Holiday Seasons to come. Thanks for reading and happy felting!!!
