Tips for Adhesive-Backed Felt

After spending some quality time working with our Stick-It Felt Sheets, Letters, and Shapes and our Quick Stick lines of products, I uncovered some fun tips to help make their use that much more enjoyable and your project longer-lasting.

1) To help remove the adhesive-backing on your felt, place the object in between your thumb and index finger and gently roll back and worth to help break the seal.  From there, just peel and stick to your space.

2) To acheive a stronger hold on your projects (as long as you are doing fabric-to-fabric), use an iron set on the lowest setting and a press cloth and gently press for a few seconds on your items.  This will help create a stronger hold.

Do you have any tips you picked up along the way?  Let us know!

Santa & Reindeer Project Idea

I finally have a house with a mantel and was so excited to add some Holiday decorations to it this year.  Well, these Reindeer and Santa characters were just the trick!

Using some scrap pieces of felt, google eyes, paint, doll heads, blocks, and clothespins I was able to create a fun sleigh scene in my home.  Best part is- I was able to get my nieces and nephews to help out with it! 

Find out how to make them for yourself here!

A New Idea with Wood & Felt Characters

I was referred to Beansprouts by a co-worker this morning and couldn't wait to share them with you.  They make personalized growth charts for your little ones marking major milestones in their development.

And my favorite part, besides how adorable they look, is that they use our very own cast of Wood & Felt Characters to help add that extra special touch.  They have a variety of different themes to choose from.  I suggest you take a look at them this holiday season or get inspired to make your own project this Holiday Season!
