We love felt. (You probably already know that though.) One of our specialties is felt in all it’s forms, be it handmade wet or nuno felt, shrunken wool sweaters, or woven flat felt (especially the vintage, plaid variety).
While you’re used to seeing all of the things we do with wet or nuno felt, today we want to share with you a few of the ways you can use flat wool to create adorable Christmas ornaments. These could also be used as gift tags, or to adorn presents such as gift cards, and wine bottles. We’ve collected these cuties off of Pinterest, so be sure to follow us there for more ideas!
These little deer ornaments are so, so sweet. You could do without the bow for the little men in your life, or even add little felt antlers. Click on the photo to be taken to the website for more information.
The above birds are not a tutorial, but wow, what an inspiration! Think of all the beautiful color combinations you could make. You could even teach a few simple embroidery stitches to your little ones and make them together. Felt is a great material because it can easily be stitched with a blunt needle. No pricked fingers makes for a great introduction to handiwork for kiddos.
These darling Christmas tree ornaments will use up your small scraps of wool. Click the photo for the full tutorial from This Heart of Mine. I think that the neutral tones are really beautiful, but they would also look great out of shades of green or even gray.
These adorable coasters by Martha Stewart look like eyelet! A set of 4 coasters would be such a sweet handmade addition to a gift of a mug and gift card to their favorite coffee shop.
Our flat felt comes in so many beautiful hand dyed colors and we even have a selection of vintage plaid, houndstooth, and herringbone pieces. Sharon uses it often as an applique for stockings, totes and wallhangings like these
We hope you find some inspiration through this post, and we’d love to see what you’ve made with our flat felt!
