Toucan Play at That Game
Felt has always been one of our go-to materials to craft with, and our resident Queen of Cute designer Krista (the genius behind most of our felt animal stuffies) has done it again with this fabulous DIY felt toucan wall art. It is wonderful for adding a little tropical touch to your seasonal decor, or it can be the start of creating a tropical themed nursery or special event. Make the toucan as a wall hanging like we did, or simply make the stuffie as a cute friend for your favorite little one!
