If you are like me, you have a ton of crafting supplies sitting around the house. And by that, I mean stuff that we used for one kids’ craft project or another and then saved the leftover parts “just in case” we need them in the future. Sound familiar? It’s a good thing we had felt scraps left over from a previous project because we had a chance to use them in this felt scraps craft!
We joined a few other bloggers in a monthly craft challenge where we are each using one specific medium and coming up with our own crafts. You can find all of the other bloggers that are in this challenge in an upcoming round-up post (that I’ll link here when it’s live!).
I would love to hear how YOU would use felt scraps in a craft!
Felt Scraps Fairy Wand Craft
This post contains affiliate links.
This craft is super easy to make. You’ll need just three items:
- Felt scraps in a variety of colors (THIS set has 42 colors for only about $11)
- Pipe cleaners We got ours from www.craftprojectideas.com
To make the fairy wands, you’ll need to first cut the felt into small 1/4 inch strips. Cut those strips into 2-3 inch long pieces.
Then, stack several colors together and pinch them in the center.
Finally, wrap one end of the pipe cleaner around the felt very tightly. This craft is an excellent way to work on fine motor skills such as pinch strength and scissor skills.
You can also bend the pipe cleaner in half to make the wand more stable.
Now it’s time to play!
