After a long day of university I was so excited to find a Crafty Creatives Subscription box on my doorstep. Growing up I was always looking for new things to make and create so being sent a box of crafts was like a childhood dream for me. This box was the an autumnal dream with 8 sweet woodland creatures you can make to hang as bunting or on a tree. The box arrived with an adorable information card showing you the cute little felt critters that you can make as well as all the instructions and supplies you need.
The animals themselves were surprisingly easy to make. First you have to cut out the paper outlines which would then be used as stencils to cut out the felt shapes. There was a step by step guide on which parts to sew on when followed by at which point you need to stuff the little sweethearts. The animals varied in difficulty, some were made up of only 2 different parts and others up to 6. I would be lying if I said I made them all myself as I had some help from some flatmates who couldn’t resist a good bit of arts and crafts.
The final outcome was so adorable as well as versatile. Seeing as it is still a bit too early to start decorating the christmas tree we are currently displaying our woodland friends on a piece of string above the TV. As soon as December rolls around however our tree is going to be filled with these little buddies. One thing I found really amazing about this kit is not only did it come with more than enough felt so you definitely wouldn’t run out but the stencils and instructions could be used over and over again to make as many crafts as you want. Its works across all medium not just felt, however if you want them to be stuffy then felt is definitely the best option.
The box retails for £15 and can be found here www.craftycreatives.com. I am blown away with the quality of this box and, even with my limited sewing skills, the creatures look like something we have bought from a shop. It was so nice to just kick back and be creative whilst shutting off the technology world (I literally sound like my mum right now but every word is true). Plus we are going to have the most adorable christmas tree ever!
Go and grab another cuppa on me, Em x
