Brighten up your home and create gorgeous gifts with a colorful array of garlands, faux botanicals, and much more.
Let Rachel Henderson and Jayne Emerson inspire you to create your own boho paradise made from felt with fresh green faux succulents, cheese plant leaves, and needle-felted cacti. Wall hangings and mobiles are a great way to change the look of a room quickly, and there are some great ideas here: try a leaf door curtain, a felt bead chandelier, or a daisy wall hanging to bring a handmade touch to your décor. There are lovely gifts to make, too, including a cute folk key ring and a felt ball bouquet, and don't forget to try needle felting and make a vibrant needle-felted bird. With beautiful illustrations guiding you every step of the way, you will feel confident in embracing a wide range of techniques for working with felt, a versatile and inexpensive material with endless possibilities.
