Felt is one of my absolute most favourite things to craft with as it’s so easy to use so I’m really pleased to be sharing some crafts with felt with you today. I’m sharing a mixture of both crafts with felt to make for kids and a couple that I think are nice just to make for yourself, although if I’m honest even with things like the garland I’m sharing below I often start by thinking that I’m making it for myself but the kids soon commandeer it! These would all also make great crafts with felt for teens or tweens too.
A few years back I used to do silversmithing and I must admit that I do miss it a bit. Not that I was great at it, but it was a really good excuse to just do something for myself and I love being able to look at something and think ‘I made this.’ With two kids getting out a blow torch just got a bit too tricky so jewellery making became something that was consigned to my past, I’m super excited therefore to be working with Jewellery Maker today to share about their new craft kits including this DIY charm bracelet which are a great way to fit some creative time and jewellery making into your life. What’s more, read on and I’ve got a great offer for you from Jewellery Maker too!
One of my resolutions for this year was to start and do a bit more crafting for myself again. Obviously I share loads of craft ideas on here but ironically this has lead to me doing far less crafting for myself these days which is a bit of a shame. When Sarah from Evermore contacted me to ask if I’d like to try out their DIY scented candle making kits I jumped at the chance as I knew that this would force me to put a bit of ‘me-time’ aside and of course it helped that the candles themselves looked fabulous.

So during the summer my friend Gude sent me a letter, she owns an online snail mail shop The Paperdashery and so unsurprisingly it was gorgeous, all pretty stuff and beautifully written and so I wrote straight back. Except of course I didn’t. I’m dyslexic and I have the absolute worst handwriting ever known to mankind and at 37 I still can’t hold a pen properly. Add to that the fact that the thought of making stuff pretty has a tendency to bring me out in a panic and the letter just didn’t happen. However with today being National Handwriting Day I was challenged to face my fears about my terrible penmanship and write to the people I owed mail too and actually with a few little things and some simple snail mail ideas to help it wasn’t that bad, maybe even fun?!
Last year I shared 10 free Valentine’s Day colouring pages for adults and they were so popular that I thought I’d share some more! If you love free colouring pages make sure you sign up to my weekly newsletter here so that you don’t miss any, I normally have an exclusive or a round up of some of my favourites that I’ve found.
