Web Round-up: Felt

Kelly and I have been wanting to showcase felt for a while now and with Christmas this weekend (still not ready) it seemed like three ways to wrap gifts with felt was in order. There are still so many great felt ideas out there though so don’t be surprised if you see felt return for an encore presentation. Here are just a few of our favorites from around the web:

Loving these felt pinecones. They would make great name cards for each place setting at your next Thanksgiving feast.

These would be great for package ties any time of year. Or how great would a big one look on top of a simple white cake?!

Heart Handmade UK features some amazing felt crafts. These pillows would make fabulous gifts or would really dress up a lounge area at your next event!

And you will definitely see me making these from Martha Stewart. I want to have a party just so I can pass these out at favors with witty little sayings in them. So fun!

Hope you enjoyed felt this week. I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas. XOXO

So how could you use these at an event you ask? Well a few quick ideas…

  • Make a wreath for welcoming guests to your event fashioned out of ornaments

Saw this image and a complete narrative popped into my head! He’s at a biker bar drinking, I walk in as this song cues up…he insists on buying everyone a drink because the sacred words of ACDC told him to do so, we become good friends instantly…

Love this image, love that super woman is on top of the pyramid, love the American flags waving. It’s badass personified, which I’ve always felt this song was as well…

Isn’t this image pretty? Made me immediately think of Karen O. and her lovely voice.

Howdy guys! If you follow us on twitter (@annaleeco) then you surely know we are project runway fans! Upon first glance of this fearless woman I thought “fashion is her weapon” thus bringing the lyrics of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club “weapon of choice” to mind. Doesn’t it look like shes doing some major battle with her impeccable fashion sense?!

Hey guys! Jodi here. Sorry for the lack of design with today’s image. Work has me barely keeping my head above water. We will be back next week with a fabulously designed song title – promise. Hope everyone has a super stellar weekend!

It’s interesting to me how the meaning of a song can evolve as you age, the lyrics click and there is an “ah-ha moment” where it all makes sense. As a kid in the 80’s I liked this song by the Talking Heads, but now I truly understand this song. I have a deep appreciation for this band’s music and poignant lyrics and I’m pretty sure somewhere around age 30 it all started to make sense. So here’s to growing up!

I think Jodi found the cutest and most clever socks in the world! Seriously,  if only they could speak…oh wait, that’s what I do every Friday: give Jodi’s images a voice. I imagine these socks to be as sharp-witted and quirky as a Belle and Sebastian song. Enjoy!

Calexico is a band that I find myself recommending to people all the time; their entire library is AMAZING, they are no one-album or one-song wonder band. At first glance, this image made me laugh and then it made me hum some Calexico to myself, thus giving me the perfect cue to introduce y’all (my blog-reading buddies) to Calexico. Enjoy!
