JOY & WONDER SERIES: Spring Felt Fairy Tutorial

Let’s Felt!

Crafting is a wonderful way to stay present and engaged with our kiddos - the trick is to keep it simple! Felt is an ideal material to work with because it’s soft, tactile, easy to manipulate and it comes in a fantastic array of colors.

Jes Anthonis of Mosey Handmade has put together a sweet felt project for you all – a Spring Fairy Peg Doll!

Faity doll felt craft tutorial for kids

Our Spring Fairy Peg Doll tutorial is perfect for little hands, and easy enough for ages 3 and up with adult supervision. These peg dolls are perfect for your nature table or mantel or can be pocket companions on all your adventures!
