Life is so busy: Kids, work, home, laundry, the list goes on…
I think stress flows from fingertips when I craft.
When I can’t sleep or I need to unwind, I relax with my glue gun and the refresh button on Pinterest.
I love all the fun felt ruffles I’ve seen lately.
I took these simple instructions to make a felt ruffle and created my own version of a Ribbon felt & ruffle wreath to hang on my front door:
Felt (I chose 3 colors 1/8 yard)
$3.00 Straight pins
Felt ruffles are easy to make, but are time-consuming, which is why I opted for half a ruffled wreath. And also why I’m thankful for a tween who loves to craft as much as I do: In about five minutes, I hot-glued a handful of ruffled felt pieces (folded the same as the wreath) and made these two pins. Fun, huh? Seriously, easy and cost only pennies!
These are so cute and would make perfect teacher gifts or just a great way to dress up a shirt.
cut 3″ circle felt (easiest way to do this: stamp the top of a cup on an ink pad and “stamp” it on to felt, cut)
fold and hot glue 6 or 7 felt “ruffles” in half and then quarter
glue each ruffle to circle felt with hot glue
attach with pin
Anyone else find crafting relaxing?
