I never FELT so many flowers!
One of my new discoveries and the very thing that has lit a fire under my creative tushie this season is the yarn wreath with felt flowers. I admit it, I saw this browsing Etsy, and you see what happened next… Of course I didn’t copy the artist’s original design. While I do believe imitation is the highest form of flattery, I would never try to pass off another person’s work as my own. I am an idea thief. This is MY little wreath and I LOVE it! It reminds me of a warm cozy sweater I just want to cuddle up in! As I have been researching other ideas to take on how to create the beautiful flowers for the wreaths, I have had my eyes opened to so much more! All this time I thought felt was just a children’s craft project. What I fool I have been! I have a good little stock of various types of felt flowers growing in my craft room… I can’t wait to show you what I do with the harvest!!! Stay tuned!! And while these flowers are indeed FABLOUS, felt can be turned into so much more than just flowers! It can be made into beautiful coasters, trivets, slippers, dolls, and stuffed animals… the list go on! I foresee a lot of felt in our futures!
