19 Cricut felt projects to inspire your next crafting session
Hey all! Ever since making some miniatures for my daughter’s dollhouse (including the area rugs made of felt), I have been really into the idea of felt crafting with my Cricut. (By the way, if you haven’t seen it and are in to that sort of thing, see her modern dollhouse I designed and built from scratch—it’s on my other blog!)
I have done a couple of things that haven’t made the blog yet. Sometimes you just want to craft without taking a bunch of pics and documenting it all. Plus there is always some trial and error when working with new materials.
But if you’re looking for Cricut felt projects to inspire your next crafting session, this roundup is for you! I am sharing 19 awesome Cricut felt projects for a variety of things. Flowers, banners, puppets, play food, and even a fancy dog collar. And more! So let’s get started—
1. DIY Felt Flowers Made With Cricut
I love felt flowers, but I always feel like they would take sooo much work and attention to detail to make. This tutorial for amazingly detailed felt flowers by Create and Babble shows you how to make the felt flowers without cutting each individual petal. Because that would be torture.
2. DIY Felt Rainbow
Okay, my daughter is deep into a rainbow phase, and I feel like she’d really appreciate this adorable poly filled felt rainbow made by Lauras Crafty Life. Heads up that it does involve some sewing! She used a machine, but you might be able to do it by hand, too.
3. DIY Felt Halloween Banner
Just in time for Halloween (because I’m posting this in October 2021), this cute, not creepy felt Halloween banner by Happiness is Homemade would be perfect for a kids Halloween party!
I love the dimensional look that layered felt creates, and this one turned out great. You could easily replicate this layered felt approach for any type of banner for any holiday or birthday.
3. DIY Felt Play Food
So cute! This DIY felt food that almost looks good enough to eat from The Country Chic Cottage was made using a Cricut! Because what kind of maniac can cut in a perfect circle? 🙂
These can be stitched by hand, which is great news for those of you who either don’t own a sewing machine or just don’t have a desire to sew that much. A needle and thread is each and not much of an investment.
4. DIY Felt Dollhouse Rugs Made Using the Cricut Maker
The DIY felt dollhouse rugs I made as part of my post on 7 dollhouse miniatures you can make with the Cricut Maker have gotten a lot of use in our house. They are a fun touch for the DIY dollhouse I made my daughter. I layered some and used a single piece of felt for others.
5. Easy Felt Christmas Trees
My friend Cori as Hey Let’s Make Stuff made these adorable colorful and easy to make felt Christmas trees! The tutorial also includes some great tips on working with felt on a Cricut machine.
6. Jungle Finger Puppets Made Out of Felt
I think my daughter would lose it if she saw these! She loves finger puppets, and the fact that these sweet little finger puppets ever from House Wife Eclectic also have GOOGLEY EYES? Adorable!
7. DIY Birthday Felt Pennants
I love these Happy Birthday pennants from the House That Lars Built because you can adapt this tutorial for any celebration. Birthday? Great. Graduation party? Also great. Just looking for kids room decor? Super! Just use the flag template and decide what to put on it.

8. Cricut Felt Bows
If you want to get a bit extra for your holiday wrapping this year, check out these custom bows by Steph at Crafting in the Rain. Will they make your gift recipients think you have too much time on your hands? Yes. Will it be worth it because they look amazing? Also yes.
9. 3-1 Felt Flower Accessories
You’ll love this post about 3 ways to use this felt flower from 100 Directions with Jen Goode. She used a Cricut to cut out the felt flower chain and shows you 3 different ways to accessorize it!
10. Winter Felt Ornaments
Definitely adding some winter-themed felt Christmas ornaments like these by Albion Gould to our crafting list! I feel like this would be fun to do with kids—cut out the parts and work with kids to glue them together and make the ornaments!
11. DIY Potted Felt Succulents Made With a Cricut
If you’ve ever been to my other blog, you’ll know I love real plants. Maybe too much. But I know real plants aren’t for everyone, and these potted felt succulents by Sustain My Craft Habit are adorable! Best part? You can’t overwater them and kill them. 🙂
12. Felt Carrot Bunting
Easter is still quite a few months away, so you can file this easy carrot felt bunting by The Happy Scraps into your spring projects folder. (Or, better yet, head to the original post and Pin it for the spring!)
Much like many of these projects, you could easily change this project to use something other than a carrot. You could do a kid’s name for room decor, too—like I did for R’s DIY felt and wood bead garland!
13. DIY Felt Animal Masks
These are adorable and the perfect use of felt on a Cricut machine! The fun felt animal masks by Sisters Suitcase are much more comfortable than using paper or cardstock, and cutting the eye holes on a Cricut is much easier than having to jam your scissors in and cut by hand.
I also love how she layered the felt for the ears and nose pieces. You can sew the elastic straps onto the back of the masks, or you can use a strong glue like hot glue!

14. Candy Corn Garland
This 15-minute candy corn garland from Hey Let’s Make Stuff is pretty much the only kind of candy corn I like, and you can quote me on that. Perfect for a kids Halloween party of fall classroom decor!
15. Felt Back to School Pennant Flags Project
I love these customizable back to school pennant flags by Ashley of At Home with Ashley. I don’t know about you, but my kid loves holding flags and other things with sticks. And it’s hard to get her to stand still for a picture. Maybe this would help?
It’d also be cute to make one that just says “first day of school” and use it for the first day of school pics every year.
16. Patterned Felt Gift Pouches
A Kailo Chic Life made these fun felt gift pouches–the stiffer-than-normal Cricut felt is a great use for these since they have a bit more structure to them.
She also used the rotary bade on the felt setting to cut out all of the circles, a task that would have been painful—if not impossible—to do by hand!
17. Felt Christmas Trees
I love understated holiday decor, and these rustic felt Christmas trees by The Country Chic Cottage definitely fit that bill. You could really have these out from late fall through the winter since they don’t really scream “Christmas” or “holidays.”
18. Colorful Felt Pincones
Holly from Club Crafted made these fun colorful felt pinecones by cutting out the felt pieces on her Cricut machine and gluing them in a shingled pattern over a foam oval. Super creative.
19. DIY Felt Flower Pet Collar Project
And for the last of the Cricut felt projects, how about a pet project? While most dogs would probably destroy this collar through daily use, this DIY felt flower fancy dog collar from Dream a Little Bigger would be perfect for family portraits or a special occasion like a wedding your pup is involved in!
