These easy felt cards come together in a snap and their soft texture and bright colors ensure they'll stand out from the pack. To create, use pinking shears to cut a 5" x 7" dark-gray felt rectangle for each card. Next, cut colorful felt into assorted holiday-themed shapes and glue onto card base. Finish by stitching on holiday greetings which have been printed onto paper. Image courtesy of Melanie Blodgett.
Creating handmade succulents in your favorite fall colors is simple with just a bit of time and patience. Cut concentric circles out of felt and form the edges into petal shapes. You can create pointy or smooth succulents, whichever you prefer. If you know how to felt you can use your felting needle to attach the layers, but if you’re not sure how to start or just want to save time, hot glue the layers of felt together. Create mini succulent flowers by cutting out circles and felting or gluing them into spiral shapes.
