Modern Decorating Inspiration: Felt Embellishments

Felt Lampshade

Felt — that fuzzy material you used in fourth grade to make cut out animals & party masks — has made a beautiful come back! By it’s very DIY nature, felt is a neat texture and material to incorporate. From it’s no-hem-needed cutting capabilities to the ease of tracking it down (every craft, art or kids store in your neighborhood), you could not ask for a more versatile DIY textile.

Full House featured these two lampshade and pillow felt inspirations, I adore the delicate flowered lampshade that could be remade with a few flea market broaches. The ruffled pillows below add a whimsical touch to the room and would be so easy to create with gathered strips of felt and a quick hand stitch (from Kelly + Olive).

    The dresser pulls that I did were actually not felt at all, they were silk flowers that I got from a craft store. I think that felt flowers would be awesome as drawer pulls as well. I’m so glad you like it. Thanks for sharing.
