there was some major felt crafting around here this weekend! if i can pull it together, i hope to have two new tutorials posted this week...just so that you can have your own felty fun!!!
first up in our weekend of family felt crafting... felt shape garlands using this felt garland tutorial from sewn studio. i cut a bunch of 9x12" sheets of felt into 3" squares which i then cut in half to make the triangles.
i gave each of the girls a needle threaded with about 3 yards of perle cotton, basic instructions, and let them start putting triangles on their strings.
with minimal parental assistance, both girls made lovely garlands, and B even made two! yay for successful kiddo craft project. we plan to hang the garlands on the christmas tree, which we're putting up tonight. we think.
i sort of got a bit carried away with cutting out the triangles, and we might have ended up with a few hundred more than we needed... so we packaged up the extra along with some perle cotton to send to some friends (and just maybe some secret swap gift recipients).
do you have a go-to kiddo friendly craft? please share!
