Last night I was looking at my felt squares and then I had a thought…FALL
So I grabbed some supplies listed below and went to town. I think if you kept it simple this would be a great project for the smaller family members too. Heck this could even be a great project for them to make as gifts for family members like grandmas and such. I come from a very crafty family so we are always making gifts.
Ok, ok back to what I did…
- Felt - in various colors
- Buttons – different shapes and sizes
- Glue – I just used Arlene’s craft glue
- Leaf and flower shapes that you can trace over the felt or cut out shapes you printed from the web if you like.
- If you scrap book and have one of those sizzix machines then this will be very easy especially if you have one of those die cut shapes.
For the base piece of felt I started out with a square and then rounded off the edges, then cut out lots of different leaves and flowers in a variety of colors. Next I laid them out in an eye pleasing manner. For me that was on the edges since the ceramic pumpkins that were going to set on them would take up most of the center part. Did I mention pumpkins?!? After I found a look I liked I started to glue them down on top of each other and as a finishing touch I added a button in the center of each flower.
Ok I hope I was not too long winded and not too non mini. Next post will be mini.
Also a big welcome to Vicky and Illyria for becoming followers of my blog. I am truly glad to have found the mini blog world it gives me such inspiration from all over the world and the ability to meet people that if not for blogs I would never have gotten to know. Have a great weekend everyone!
