Felt Craft Ideas & DIYs

Felt is some of my favorite material to craft with. It’s versatile, colorful and inexpensive.

Today, I’m sharing some of my favorite DIY crafts that use wool felt and craft felt!

I have many favorite crafting materials, but near the top of the list is wool felt.

You can find it in every color, and it’s perfect for so many craft projects from wreaths to garlands and more. 

First, let’s talk about where to find wool felt and some of the differences between different kids of felt.

Wool Felt vs Craft Felt

There are a few differences between wool felt and craft felt.

Wool felt is substantially pricier than craft felt, but it’s also more durable, softer, and the colors are often much more vibrant.

Look for 100% wool felt versus simply “wool felt” which is often made with wool combined with rayon.

It’s the best felt to use for your very special crafting projects. It’s also great for smaller projects, especially if you don’t need a lot of it!

On the other end of the spectrum, craft felt is much cheaper, and more readily available in craft stores than wool felt.

Craft felt is often made using recycled materials such as water bottles, or even synthetic materials (such as acrylic).

Where to Buy Felt

I’ve found and purchased felt in various places over the years, but Amazon has become my more recent go-to for the price and color selection.

Here is a listing for various sizes of felt for crafting.

You can also, of course, find felt in craft stores such as Hobby Lobby and Michaels.

If you’re looking for wool felt, here’s a great listing for 18″x18″ sheets of pure merino felt

Best Felt for Crafting

For general, all-purpose crafting, it is probably just fine to use craft felt.

Wool felt is best, though, for your more special, heirloom-quality craft projects.

Craft felt does tend to pill, and is also thinner than wool felt. It’s definitely a case of you get what you pay for!

I do about 75% of my crafting with craft felt, though, and it’s fine for wreaths, felt flower making, kids crafts, etc.
