Make a… mug decoration
CUT out from felt for each mug – two 5.5cm (2¼in) circles for the base, a strip 18x15cm (7x6in) folded in half lengthways for the mug side, a strip 16x1cm (6¼x⅜in) to reinforce the back, and a 10x10cm (4x4in) piece for the handle.
TAKE the folded felt, with the fold at the top, and stitch the design centrally on one side of the fabric. Once stitched, refold and glue the layers together using fabric glue.
GLUE the felt circles together with the card between. Wrap and then glue the side of the mug around the circular base, overlapping at the back. You may need to hold the felt until the glue dries. Use the felt strip to reinforce the back seam.
APPLY glue to one side of the felt handle, and then roll up tightly. Position the handle on the side of the mug, you may need to trim some of the length to make it fit. Glue the ends to the mug.
CUT strips from the white felt to make the marshmallows – 1.5cm (¾in) wide. Apply glue to one side, and then roll up tightly, holding until dry. Place in the mug. To hang, use a length of baker’s twine threaded through a hole punched in the side of the mug.
You could fill these with actual mini marshmallows instead to turn them into a cute gift idea!
