Things have been really busy here lately (or maybe just busy in my head:). I’ve managed to finish a few sewing projects, including my mother-in-law’s long awaited bike bag, and will be posting those tutorials shortly. I’ve also met with the amazing people at the UC San Diego Recreation Center, who want me to host a few more craft workshops and promote my work at The Felted Fox. I am thrilled and honored!
In the meantime, our Matilija poppies started to flower and I felt they deserved some pretty neon vases. Follow the tutorial below to make your own.
What you’ll need:
Plastic jar/bottle – I used plastic bottles and cut off the tops.
Remove the stickers from plastic containers and cut off the tops (if necessary).
Cut a piece of felt large enough to wrap around the plastic jar.
Place a few beads of glue around the plastic jar and press the felt in place. Cut any excess.
Glue the rope in place, starting at the base of the container. Add a few drops of glue as you wrap the rope around the container.
Add some flowers and enjoy!
