How to Make a Reusable Felt Poppy

It’s poppy season! As the symbol of Remembrance Day, the poppy has significant and poignant meaning. And nestled in between Halloween and Christmas, this a great time to refresh and renew your home decor, a short break amidst the two biggest decorating holidays. Come November, a reusable felt poppy can help add a little reminder to be thankful for everything we have. You can use this versatile little flower in so many ways – pillows, in vases, on a canvas, in centerpieces, wreaths, and of course, you can wear them. Happy crafting and remember to donate to your local poppy fund.
