Quick post about my FREE class on DIY: FELT FLOWER that I will be having on Periscope @ 3pm EST.
Here are some of the materials you will need for the class:
– Floral Wire
– Glue Gun
If you watched my scope yesterday, I showed you the sizes of the squares you will need to have ready for the class. Here is the scope from yesterday if you missed it:
The really cool thing about this project is the steps are pretty easy and you can create these cuties any size you’d like. I made sure to leave out any specific dimensions on the sheets of felt and cutting. So, feel free to get creative!
We’ve also created lots of other cute DIY’s for Valentines, like:
PLEASE NOTE: This project is super fun but A LOT of work for your little. It took us a total of 4 hours to complete 24 mini envelopes. I ended up helping her to complete the sewing part as it can get tiring on the fingers while sewing.
QUICK VIDEO TUTORIAL IS AVAILABLE AT THE END OF THIS POST. HAVE FUN!
1. Sheets of Felt
4. Thread or Embroidery Thread
STEP 1: (click on images to enlarge)
Fold the sheet of felt and cut it in half. Once it’s cut in half, cut the half pieces in half agiain. Of course, you can adjust the size by cutting the pieces however you’d like. We are working with 9″x12″ sheets of felt in this tutorial.
STEP 2: (click on images to enlarge)
Sew the button on one of the short sides of the felt piece.
STEP 3: (click on images to enlarge)
Once you’ve sewn the button, fold the piece of felt over and and leave a little bit of space on top for the flap. Once you’ve decided on the size of your flap, fold the flap in half and make a hole with your scissors. We made the cut like a cross. That made it easier for the button to slide through.
STEP 4: (click on images to enlarge)
Once Step 1-3 are complete, you can start sewing. Make sure the button and flap are not closed. That’ll make the sewing easier. Parents, please be sure to help your child during this step as needles can be a little tricky and scary for a first time sewer. If you or your little don’t want to sew, you can see my previous tutorial where we used a hot glue gun to create felt envelopes. Fabric glue is an option as well.
& VOILA! You’re done! :-)
Cute little felt Envelopes ready to get filled with lots of candies and trinkets for this Valentines Day. We’re thinking of filling them with Tootsie Rolls and cute erasers we found at the Target Dollar spot.
If you give these little guys a try, I’d love to see the finished product! Tag us online so we can see and follow along! @TheTwiddles / #TheTwiddles on Instagram, Twitter, & Facebook.
Hi friends! St. Patrick’s Day is around the corner! Even though we don’t really celebrate St. Patty’s day, green is my most favorite color (ever) & I’m always up for something fun! I don’t have much of St. Patty’s day deco, so I decided to create a super cute and easy shamrock garland to share with you guys. Because who doesn’t love garlands?! ;) Here’s what to do:

Materials Needed: Green Pom Poms, Twine/String, Felt square, needle, hot glue or regular glue, scissors.
Step 1: Gather your materials. Step 2: Pair your poms in groups of three. Once you have them grouped up, use your hot glue gun to glue them together. To make it more kid-friendly, use regular glue if you want to try this with your kiddo. Using your scissors, cut felt strips. Step 3: Apply the felt strips to the back of the poms. I didn’t cut a specific size of the felt strips, I just eyed it according to the size of my poms. Be sure to measure accordingly. Step 4: Thread your needle with your string/twine and pierce the needle through the top of the pom pom & hang.
Voila! Quick & easy St. Patty’s day garland fun! ☘ For extra luck, you can wrap the garland around your head just like Rob did in the picture below. LOL! I hope you guys have fun making this cutie & I’d love to see any photos. Tag us @TheTwiddles / #TheTwiddles on Instagram, Twitter, & Facebook.
