Another Reason Felt Rocks!

feltRocks

How many times have you wished your kids had SAFE rocks to play with? Never? Well me neither but you should still check these out! These are actually made from wool felt, no kidding how cool are they?

They are part of the exhibit Fashioning Felt at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum and are available for purchase from Molo design.

Can’t justify the whopping $240 price tag on these babies, make some of your own with our Felt Rocks! Tutorial. 

A perfect project for those who have never wet felted before and a great clean but messy project for the kids! Make few small ones for kid friendly coffee table decor and a sure fire conversation piece or throw a rattle in a big one for a baby toy Bam Bam would be proud to own! You could turn it into a learning activity by arranging the rocks from largest to smallest or Group the rocks by color or felt with lots of color layers and cut apart to learn how rocks are formed.happysheep

Happy Crafting!

    WOW! You have so many wonderful projects here! I’m so smitten with the felt food. I’d love to link to some of your projects if you didn’t mind.

    Thanks for the beautiful tutorial. I am always looking for fun, easy projects to do with kids who come to our Farm Stay vacations and for schools, youth organizations and other groups who come to visit!

    I saw a series of these stones sewed together into a small rug,and it looked fabulous. Perhaps I’ll make some for the bath. It would bring a touch of the outdoors into the house.
