Project #122: Black Forest Felt Antlers
A cute little addition for a kid’s room for that safari feel.
What you’ll need:
* 8 x 12 piece of brown wool felt
* 8 x 12 piece of white or cream wool felt
* Brown and white thread
Step 1: Cut two pieces of the brown felt in the shape of a wood plaque. Cut four pieces of the cream felt in the shape of antlers.
Step 2: Sew together the two pieces of brown felt (you can sew by hand or with a sewing machine). Sew together the four pieces of the cream felt (two separate antlers). Sew the felt pieces together with as little of a seam as possible. Don’t worry about sewing right sides together, it doesn’t matter with felt.
Step 3: Stuff the felt plaque with batting. Stuff the two antlers with batting (you may want to use a chopstick to stuff the antlers).
Step 4: Sew the felt plaque shut.
Step 5: With the brown thread on the back of the plaque sew a little hook for hanging.
Stel 6: Trim the end of the antlers slightly at an angle so that the antlers will curve upwards. Turn the edges of the felt antlers in 1/8 of an inch and stitch onto the felt plaque with the white thread.
