15 minute DIY: Felt Leaves on a Stick

In keeping with the “things on a stick” crafts I’ve been doing lately, here are some little felt leaves glued to a stick:

I love the effect: nature meets cartoon. This little branch will be part of the nursery, along with my other stick DIYs.

To make your own, you’ll need a stick, a piece of felt or two ($.39 a sheet at Michael’s; I used yellow and green), and your trusty hot glue gun.

First, cut little leaf shapes out of felt. I cut the felt into strips, the strips into rectangles, and the rectangles into leaves.

Next, hot glue the leaves onto a stick.

That’s it. Once glued on, you can manipulate the felt leaves a little so the shapes feel more leaf-like (curl the ends slightly with your fingers). Other than that, you’re done. Put the stick in a little vase somewhere and take a million pictures for Instagram. Revel in your craftiness. You really deserve Ben and Jerry’s.
