Easy Felt Crafts: Farm Puzzle - Felt


This easy felt crafts farm puzzle can be quickly completed and generate fun for little ones to enjoy over and over again. It's similar to the Easy Paper Crafts Farm Puzzle, but the shapes are larger and the resulting puzzle larger - and softer.

Pieces of craft felt and simple tools make this an inexpensive and easy project to do.

Let's look:

The Steps for How to Make the Easy Felt Crafts: Farm Puzzle:

Print the pages for the Easy Paper Crafts Farm Puzzle Paper pattern.

One page shows the colors for each portion of the farm puzzle.

The other pages include the patterns for each of the craft felt farm puzzle pieces.

Easy Felt Crafts Farm Puzzle step 1 print the pattern pieces

Cut around each of the pattern pieces. You can cut outside the lines then cut along the lines when cutting the felt pieces.  

Easy Felt Crafts Farm Puzzle step 2 cut out the pattern pieces

There should be two pieces of craft felt cut using each pattern piece. The two pieces glued together offer more stability than just a single thickness of craft felt.

Pin the pattern piece to two thicknesses of the felt.

Or, if your scissors are not cooperating, pin to one thickness at a time.

 Cut two felt shapes for each pattern piece.

Cut two of each of the other easy felt crafts farm puzzle pieces.

Make sure the edges match and pin the two felt shapes on one side.

Separate the other side and apply glue in a zigzag pattern in the middle and a thin line near the edge.

Press the craft felt shapes together.

Easy Felt Crafts Farm Puzzle step 6 glue felt pieces together

Move the pin and glue the other side of the puzzle pieces together.

Make sure the edges are securely glued as they will receive the most wear.

Easy Felt Crafts Farm Puzzle step 7 glue other side

Glue all of the craft felt puzzle pieces together.

Put the puzzle together. If an edge does not fit properly, carefully trim the felt.

This may take a few test cuts. Remember, you can always trim off more, but you can't easily add back if you trim too much.

For the craft felt bag to hold the easy felt crafts farm puzzle, position the two dark green felt pieces together.

Apply glue along three of the edges - two long edges and one narrow edge.

The glue should be a thin zigzag line gluing 1/4 to 3/8 inch along the edges.

Trim the top, open end if the edges are not even.

Measure and mark using pins for the holes to carry the ribbon.

Measure 3/4 inch from the edge for the first set of holes - front and back. Measure down 1 1/2 inches from the top.

Mark with a pin.

Measure over 1 1/2 inch for the next holes - front and back - and down 1 1/2 inches from the top. Mark with a pin.

Continue measuring and marking. The last pin should be 3/4 inch from the opposite edge and 1 1/2 inches from the top.

Cut the holes vertically roughly 1/2 inch long through both thicknesses.
