DIY Blog Response: Felt Plantable Garden

Over at A Beautiful Mess, Katie made a beautiful "plantable garden" for her kids. I followed her great instructions and thought I would share my experience.

Everything worked out great I would say. The only change I did my flowers a bit different with wooden doweling to give them more structure.

The kids really love this unique and handmade toy!

Wooden Solar System

So our 2.5 year old has been all about the solar system lately. I was inspired by Playful Learning's craft to make a version of our own. Since he can't read yet I didn't make the cards, or the box.

It took a bit of searching, but I found all the pieces we needed as wooden knobs at Michael's. YES! I included pluto. 

We painted them one at a time with a basic water colour set. 

The final product. 

Back in Business

Its been slow going, but we have recently moved to Northern BC in Fort St John, and am finally settled in enough to start it up again. For now, if you are local to Fort St John, you can look for my pieces at Gallery North Gift shop, located in the Fort St John Cultural Centre.
