Gingerbread Princesses Made Out of Felt Cutouts
Cozy up with the EASIEST craft to do this holiday season! Like I mention above, my Felt Cutout Gingerbread Princess idea came together easily with the help of some pre-cut gingerbread man felt pieces I found at Michaels, recently in their Christmas kid craft section. The pack is around $8 but with their sales and/or a good coupon, you can really score BIG on this DIY!
From there, I raided my craft stash for colorful cupcake liners, gold craft foam, Tulip puffy paint and small wiggle eyes. You can of course, change up the materials to fit your budget, needs and desires! Just like the real deal of baking cookies, you can decorate them however YOU like!
So what are you waiting for?! Turn ordinary into personalized pieces! When you spend time with your child, crafting away the day, you are impacting them in more than one way!!! So gather up your craft supplies and make some royally great pieces with your little princess today!
Happy crafting, my friends! Please don’t forget to share pictures of your felt gingerbread princess puppets with us on our Facebook page, to admire! #gluedtomycrafts
