Tutorial Thursday

Welcome back to Tutorial Thursdays on Marigolds' Loft.
Today I want to share a quick Key Ring Craft that you can whip up in a couple of minutes....

To create this key ring, you will need:

  • A felted keyring, either bought or made
  • some wool for felting
  • a felting mat
  • felting needles
  • *Dekopointers for decoration

Place the keyring over the mat and form a small piece of wool into the beginnings of a heart form:

Using the felting needles, felt the wool into the key ring until you are happy with the heart.

Create as many hearts as you would like: (Trim the fuzzles now or when the project is dry)

And then round off by decorating with *Dekopointers to finish the project.

*I use Gonis Products as I am a distributor of these amazing crafty helpers. If you cannot find these products in your area, you will have to substitute them. Hence the descriptions in brackets. For more information on these products, please feel free to contact me.

Here is a video I created a while ago for another needle felted project, so that you can get the idea how it is done, incase you were asking :)

Now it is your turn-----
Are you ready to get your craft on?
I would love to see some Valentine Crafts, do you have any to share?

I hope so, I would love to be able to visit your Blogs and be in awe of your amazing handiwork.
