DIY Felt Gift Bow

Hello everybody!  I hope you guys are well.  I love wrapping gifts with unique wrapping paper that I either make myself, if the gift is small enough, or find at stores.  Recently, I wrapped up this gift for my god-daughter’s birthday.


I found this polka dot wrapping paper in the dollar section at Target in Harrisburg, PA awhile back.  My god-daughter loves Minnie Mouse so I found this clip art and glued it on top and then I found a Disney inspired font and printed out her name on an address label for her card.

She’s going to love it!

I also love gift bows and after finding that DIY magazine gift bow pin on Pinterest and attempting it with great results, I thought, “Let’s try using something else to make a bow.”  HELLO FELT!  










I’m definitely not a pro at sewing, but I do my best.  I love the final result of this bow and I used a long piece of thread so I could attach all the felt pieces together without having to cut and start again.  I only cut the thread for the last piece of felt, in which I sewed it separately and then tried to sew it on top of the bow without showing too much thread.  I wasn’t that successful, but that was my first attempt and I’m definitely making more of these bows so hopefully practice makes perfect.  I’m going to add a little bit of glue so it’ll stay on the gift, but hopefully still come off intact.  The gift above is my husband’s Valentine’s Day gift 🙂 wrapped up in another gorgeous print found at Target’s dollar section.  I can’t wait to show you what I got him.  It’s too freaking cute!  I also can’t wait to do more of these gift bows in different felt colors and designs.  Happy gift wrapping and bow making!

Take good care all.

Until next time…
