When you think of yarn and felt, do you think of their use more for in the fall and winter?
Although I think they are perfect for the winter months, I would also argue they are great for spring and summer as well. Maybe this makes me a rule breaker. Will you break the rules with me too?
As I was crafting this week, I realized my two new projects both used what most may consider “winter” craft supplies.
If you use some bright, spring and summery colors, I think amazing crafts can use felt and yarn year round. Let me prove my case to you with some pictures.
I took this stick from my backyard and spray-painted it a light pink. I then simply sanded it a little and wrapped some yarn around it to add another punch of color and texture. How cute can this idea be paired with some other spring decor?
This week I shared my DIY Felt Hydrangea over on my friend Heidi’s blog. If you too have a black thumb, you might want to check it out!
I never get sick of seeing yarn pom poms. There are some awesome tutorials on pinterest, if you have been wanting to make a few. I simply spruced up the bouquet from my winter mantel with a few spring color pom poms.
If you need some cheap wall decor, you can make a simple DIY Pennant Flag or a fun character with yarn hair like our Fluttershy My Little Pony.
Babies are being born year round, right!? Baby gifts can get expensive. I love to add a personal touch to my gifts. You can make this DIY Burp Cloth or Felt Hair Bow as fun simple additions to your gifts.
These are a few of my favorites, but I have a lot more too! Please feel free to bookmark, pin and share this image below to share the felt and yarn love year round!

My current obsession is making felt flower garlands. There are so many possibilities for these. If you are attending my spring Spoonful Lab, you are getting one of these in your swag bags! If you haven’t signed up yet and are local, there are still spots available. You can register here today.
So, what do you think?! Are you in love with yarn and felt as well!? Are we rule breakers together!? I hope I’m not alone.
I love all of your projects (of course)! And ONE day, I WILL be coming to one of your labs! (Just gotta get a job first…) 🙂
