This handmade felt vase cover is the perfect way to hide ugly vases or create a non-breakable vase for a little girl’s bedroom.

As most of you know (who read my blog regularly), I have a 3-year-old girlie girl. She loves flowers, pink, butterflies, dancing, hosting tea parties for her toys, and dressing up as a princess.

While we were Halloween shopping last month, I found these green Daisy Reeds at Pier 1 Imports and thought they would look beautiful in her bedroom.  The only problem, I didn't want to put a glass vase in her room because undoubtedly it would be smashed in no time … either by her carrying her vase of flowers up and down the stairs repeatedly (she LOVES to move everything around and re-decorate) or by her brother hitting it with his hammer (which is the most likely scenario to happen).

My solution. To make a pretty felt vase cover that couldn't be broken.

Felt Vase

What you need:

  • Felt sheets (assorted colors)
  • Fabric scraps
  • Button
  • Embroidery thread
  • Needle
  • Scissors

Handmade felt vase cover

So using sheets of felt, fabric scraps, a button, and embroidery thread I started cutting and sewing. I didn't really have a plan in place when I started, so I just started cutting and creating, and adding on bits and pieces. 

To keep the vase cover sturdy .. after all, it is felt … I placed an empty 8.75oz plastic herb container inside.  That not only keeps her Daisy Reeds from falling over but if she has some fresh flowers to put in her vase (which we love buying at the farmer's market), we can put a little water in it too.

So cute and creative. Unfortunately it requires talent that I do no possess, but it’s cute all the same.

Love this idea! Wish there was a space in my daughters room for a lovely felt vase, but there’s barely space for her!
