Felt Valentine Doorknob Hanger: Toddler Craft

January 31, 2010 at 1:43 am | Posted in Winter 2010 | 5 Comments

Brianna was so excited to learn how to stitch ! So I figured there’s nothing easier/cheaper to stitch than felt… and since it’s almost Valentine’s Day we decided to make a “Heart Shape Doorknob Hanger…”

Materials Needed:

  • 1 sheet of felt
  • Thread
  • Thick Needle
  • Cotton Balls
  • Ribbon (we used princess)
  • Hot Glue Gun

1. Draw 2 exact shapes on the felt

2. Cut out the shapes

3. Tie a knot in the thread under the first heart (towards the top)

This is where the REAL fun starts for your little one…

4. Help them to push the needle in the felt and then let them pull it through… BRIANNA LOVED THIS PART!

5. Leave the two far ends open and then place the ribbon between the two hearts and add just a “little” hot glue to make sure the ribbon stays tight.

6. Let your little one finish stitching around the heart. When you only have a few stitches left then stop and stuff the cotton balls into this small opening

7. Finish the final stitches…

8. Add little flowers or ribbons (whatever you have around the house) with hot glue

Brianna would like to make another one tomorrow. If you’re interested in Brianna’s fine work then please be the first to reply after this post on our Grow With Me Gifts Fan Page!

Happy Valentines Day!
