Craft This! Weekly is a weekly challenge to craft something, anything, that was inspired by the week’s word or phrase. You can read more about it (and join in!) at Tiny Elephant.
This week’s Craft This! word was “alphabet”.
I made a little framed felt board for Lyra, with numbers, letters, and a flower. I used bright colors to go with her bedroom, where I’ll hang it, at her level, on the wall.
Framed felt boards or flannel boards are very easy to make. I removed the glass from this large frame, then stretched my background fabric tight over the cardboard frame back. I trimmed the material and then hot glued the edges down on the back of the frame. Then, I traced letters and shapes onto felt with a disappearing marker and cut them out.
These pieces will get us started, and it’ll be super easy to make more as needed.
Next week’s Craft This! theme is now up at Tiny Elephant. If you do any kind of crafting, you should join us!
