Felt flowers anyone?

Here is my new listing in my Etsy shop for Valentine's day.

A twig heart wreath embellished with red and white handcrafted felt flowers.

I had no interest in using felt for anything. I said I wasn't going to do it.  I'd seen the wreaths with the felt flowers for sale on Etsy and still wasn't interested.  But then I came across this web page - 20 Valentine's wreaths to DIY.  Each of these handmade flower wreaths use different fibers.  One was this beauty by

Sand and Sisal. Sand and Sisal also had detailed instructions for DIY felt flowers that were so easy to follow that I just had to give it a try.  Sometimes learning something new is threatening - you know what they say about teaching an old dog new tricks.  The older you get the more you stick to what you know.  That can get very boring. So it turns out it is really easy but might need some practice to get the hang of it.  


  1. HAHA! Thank you for the feature! I too had zero desire to do anything felt! It reminded me of elementary school, but the more I saw what could be done with it, the more it grew on me! I'm still not a big felt chick, but this wreath was a fun one to make. :)

  2. Very pretty! I have been making felt flowers all winter from wool sweater felt. It's so fun to wash a wool sweater and see it turn into felt. Great job on the wreath!

  3. Ooh I like it! I have a desire to learn how to felt as a new thing to do but don't know where to find the time. lol Your felt flowers are gorgeous.

  4. I love felt flowers. The wreath is just beautiful.


  5. Looks good:) good work at trying something new.
