Our camping theme bedroom has been bringing such joy not just to little Lukas and Oscar, but to our readers who seem to have been inspired by all the little handmade touches that went into making this room so special. Today we are sharing one of our favorite projects from the room β€” our felt campfire. Every camper needs a campfire to toast marshmallows on and no camping adventure is complete without it. So of course we had to make a felt bonfire for our little camper.

This is a bigger DIY project that takes a little time but our pattern and tutorial make it really quite simple and as it’s all stitched by hand you don’t even need a sewing machine to achieve this wonderful piece. I always say to start with great supplies. So shop around for good quality wool felts to make your felt campfire. It’ll make all the difference to the finished project and it’s always nice to work with good quality materials. Along with the felt, you’ll only need a pair of sharp fabric scissors, a needle, embroidery threads and the templates below, making this a great craft for the kiddos to help out with.

Of course, they will also need some felt s’ mores to toast around the campfire! For more fun ideas, make sure to check out all of our camping crafts.
