I love working with felt. Sheets of felt are inexpensive, widely available, vibrant in colour, easy to cut and a breeze to sew. In the weeks leading up to Valentine’s Day (well, any holiday really) I become more than a little obsessed with making things from felt…specifically felt hearts. I find myself with a pile of felt hearts…wondering what to make with them. So, I came up with 4 beautiful Valentine felt heart craft ideas…simple gifts to make and give.
Valentine Felt Heart – 4 Simple Craft Ideas
Felt Heart Bookmark
From the felt, cut out 2 large hearts (2″ in tall) and 2 medium hearts (1.5″ tall).
Pin and sew 1 large heart to the front of a piece of ribbon (11″ long). Once in place, use a blanket stitch to sew the two large hearts together.
Felt Heart Brooch
From the felt, cut out 1 large, 1 medium and 1 small heart.
Felt Heart Charm for Necklace
From the felt, cut 1 large, 1 medium and 1 small heart.
Sew a small loop of felt to the back of the large heart…this is where the chain or ribbon will go for the necklace. Again, position the loop near the top of the heart, so it sits nicely when on the necklace.
Felt Heart Hair Clip
From the felt, cut 1 large and 1 medium heart
And there you have it, from one simple felt heart comes 4 fabulous craft projects. I whipped these up in an afternoon and I’m sure my daughters are going to enjoy turning the felt hearts they have cut out into each of these projects. What other ideas can you think of? How else would you use your felt hearts?
