Felt Pumpkin Chair Backer

As shared on Infarrantly Creative, I created custom chair backers for my kiddos last year and started a new tradition where they get a special note or treat inside the pouch each day. I mean kids don’t get enough treats at Halloween, right {wink}? Ha! The real point for me though is just witnessing the excitement even one little Hershey kiss can bring. It makes my heart smile, and I cannot wait to continue the tradition this October!

Easter Chair Backers

Pottery Barn Kids always has the cutest seasonal chair backers, and lucky for us crafty folks, they are not too challenging to replicate. Amanda from Living in Grace immediately recognized this fact and was inspired to create an adorable lamb and bunny chair backer for Easter. They were a labor of love, requiring hours of cutting and stitching, but boy are they cute! Plus the kiddos love them!

No-Sew Antler Pillow

Aimee from It’s Overflowing shows it is possible to create a knock-off pillow without a needle and thread. Aimee let her Silhouette Cameo do almost all the work for this project! All she had to do was iron the perfectly cut deer head onto a ready-made pillow she snagged on clearance at Target. As Aimee asks, “how can something that simple be that cute!?!”

Felt Mistletoe Wreath

I am sure you are no stranger to no-sew fleece blankets with knotted edges. Pam from A Walk in the Park applied the same technique to create a mistletoe wreath for her door. The knots and pom poms lend tons of texture and look amazingly like Pam’s inspiration!

Poinsettia Pillow

Heather from Thrifty Stories had been oogling Pottery Barn’s poinsettia pillow for over a year now and finally made her own with a zipper closure for easy storage.  This pillow is both elegant and fun with the jingle bell center. My kids would have a blast shaking this pretty pillow whenever they could get their little hands on it!

Felt Christmas Trees

Today’s all about Christmas trees here at KOD! I’ve got a couple of projects to showcase that show there are more options out there than just the traditional evergreen boughs. Gail from Purple Hues and Me created this trio of red trees by cutting felt leaves and adhering them to cone forms. What a simple way to make a statement on a tabletop or mantel!

Christmas Tree Advent

This advent calendar created by Rach at Family Ever After totally knocks my socks off! I can only imagine the time that went into all the detail of cutting and stitching each adorable little felt pocket, but isn’t the end result amazing?!? I can definitely see this becoming a treasured Christmas family heirloom!

Felt Mistletoe

When West Elm sold out of felt mistletoe before November even ended, Aimee from It’s Overflowing gathered a few basic crafting supplies to recreate the holiday plant. Floral wire gave life to yarn and felt and made it super easy for Aimee to shape her mistletoe. These are adorable to hang on gifts or in hallways for extra smooches!
