45 Fun and Easy Felt Craft Ideas

Loraine loves arts and crafts and used to volunteer at an elementary art class. She loves sharing fun and easy craft tutorials.


Of all crafts, I think that felt crafts have to be one of the easiest and most economical to make. Felt is an inexpensive craft supply, and yet you can make really outstanding projects with it. Felt is the perfect option, when it comes to kids crafts, because many of the felt crafts can be glued instead of sewn.

In my Google search I looked for felt crafts that displayed a nice picture of the project and directions for making the craft. In this article I am sharing the craft sites that answered those criteria.

To make the felt owls shown above, go to Juicy Bits for the instructions.

1. Monster Tissue Holder


2. Harvest Garland

You'll be able to easily make this elegant felt Harvest garland by following the tutorial given at The Paper Mama. This is so attractive and easy to make.


3. Square Felt Farm Animals

I love, love, love these little square felt farm animals and am going to be sure to make them with my grandkids. The instructions for making them are found at Little family fun.


4. Felt Froggy

Be careful, you might want to kiss him---and then he'd turn into a handsome man instead of staying his cute little green self. Go to Frugal Fun 4 Boys for the directions on how to make the little froggy.


5. Homemade Hand Warmers

These little owls are not only cute, they are also useful. You'll find the pattern and tutorial at Repeat crafter Me. I think this would be a great stocking stuffer idea also.


6. Felt Houses

I really love these little houses. Imagine adding a few Christmas touches to the houses and having a Christmas village. This would be really great when you have only a limited amount of space for decorating. Find the template and directions for making these houses at Poopscape Projects.


7. Felt Santa Claus and Sleigh

Making ornaments like this is making a family heirloom. Go to Dollmaker for all the patterns and instructions.


8. Felt Jewelry Tray

Talk about simplicity----and this is what you get. This jewelry tray is so simple, yet so useful. You can find the directions at funEZcrafts.

9. Felt Hair Clippies

Your daughter will probably want to make one of these hair clippies for each of her girl classmates. For the directions go to Katie's Nesting Spot.


10. Felt Hearts

These little hearts are so precious. They could be used as ornaments or glue a pin on the back to make a brooch. The directions for the felt hearts can be found at favecrafts.


11. Felt Flower Wreath

This is almost more of a work of art than it is a craft. I think that I would get a deep picture frame and frame it. I think it is absolutely gorgeous. If you want to make one, find the directions at the Purl SOHO.


12. Quiet Book

Imagine all the time your little one would be able to entertain himself with a quiet book like this. Click on Martha Stewart for the directions for this little book.

There are more ways to use the felt poppy brooch than just an elegant addition to a lamp shade. Consider putting it on a purse, as a corsage or even as a gift bow.
