So in order to add to my Valentine's decor collection (which I'm just building up slowly with a few projects from this year, like this wreath) I tried my hand at the felt-fold-pin technique.
Totally not a new idea... as I'm sure you've seen this technique all over the place, I'll keep this post short and sweet. Besides, the pictures are lacking this time, I don't know what was wrong with my camera!
3, 1/4' cuts of fabric: I used light pink, hot pink, and red. Hard to tell by the photos.
2, 4" styrofoam balls
Circle Pattern, pencil, scissors
First, I traced out all my cirlces on the multiple colors of pink and red felt I purchased. I probably had around ~40 of each color. My circles were about 3 1/4 inch.
The next part is super simple! Fold each circle in half, then in half again. Take a straight pin, and push through the point at the end of the fold, and then just push into the styrofoam.
I went around in a circle first, then filled in the halves similar to how I did in this Christmas ornament project.
I propped mine up on the shelf in my new office, and I love them!
Here are some other versions of this project that I'm sure you'll love too:
Via Etsy tutorial Tuesday, this orange lumbar type pillow. Which, by the way, I absolutely love, and may make to go in the new living room one of these days:
From Design-Sponge, a super clean, white circular wreath:

So, with that, I wish you an early "Happy Valentine's Day". :)
