Lest We Forget Remembrance Day Art

Remembrance Day is not a holiday that people get excited for but that doesn’t mean that its not important. A great way to mark this special occasion is with a craft. This art project utilizes another one of our posts, How To Make a Reusable Felt Poppy. Follow the steps in that article to make a few felt poppies before continuing here to finish your project.  This is any easy project and while making the poppies may take some time because there are a few of them, assembling the frame is very simple. When this art project is done it makes a simple, beautiful frame that you can display to remember our fallen soldiers, Lest We Forget.
