As the vacation season approaches, my thoughts at all times turns to crafting festive decorations that commemorate the coziness of the season. This yr, I wished to strive one thing just a little totally different than my regular felt ornaments by incorporating flocking for added texture. Flocking is a method that entails utilizing an adhesive to use colourful fibers evenly throughout a floor. It creates the phantasm of velvet or plush felt and may actually make your do-it-yourself decor pop.
My plan was to make a coordinated set of felt ornaments in the identical coloration manner, to permit for a cohesive contact of velvet all through our areas. Beginning off with the most typical and inexpensive, we’re beginning with clear plastic spherical ornaments. These have been just a little difficult getting throughout the decoration, holding it in place, however they turned out nice… Let’s get into the supplies and directions.

To my delight, the fibers lined the shapes easily, leaving a fair coating of coloration. Just a few gentle brushings eliminated any extra not caught to the adhesive, or a mushy puff of air from a blow dryer or air compressor. The completed ornaments had an opulent, plush-like look. Better of all, the identical supplies and method meant the entire assortment matched completely.
