25 days of Felt Christmas Crafts!

29 Nov

Felt crafts for Christmas

Few things say Christmas crafting as much as felt. Felt is a perfect medium for nearly every Christmas project.

Lest you doubt this AFC will be featuring free felt Christmas crafts and templates from the blogosphere for the next 25 days .

So sharpen those scissors and craft along.

Our first project are these amazing felt houses from Claire Chauvin of Poopscape Projects:

Felt Christmas ornament tutorial

These little lighted felt houses remind me of the tradition of placing lit candles in the Windows of your home. Window candles are meant to signal loyalty to family and loved ones who cannot be with us.

Traditionally candles in the window are meant to signal to loved ones that the family inside awaited their return and the hearth was warm and waiting for them.

I think these little houses are sweet reminders of the meaning that the Christmas season holds for us and a message that family is family no matter the distance.

What you’ll need:
House template (on Poopscape Projects blog)
Felt
Embroidery floss and needle
Scissors or x-acto knife
Stiffy Fabric Stiffener
Foam brush
Optional: battery-operated led tealights
For the full tutorial checkout the Poopscape Projects blog: http://poopscape.com/projects/felthouse/felthouse.htm

See you tomorrow.

    When I first saw your houses I thought they were light another way: with a white Christmas lights. If you covered the green wires with white felt, it would look like snow.

      Thats a great idea! I’ve also seen some lights with white wires for the less crafty among us.
