Fall Holiday Bows With Dollar Store Felties

Fall Holiday Bows With Dollar Store Felties

I found some Halloween and Thanksgiving felties at the Dollar Tree and topped some simple little bows. I love finding hairbow goodies for a steal! You can dress up Fall holiday bows with dollar store felties for a quick and easy holiday accessory or gift.

You can add to existing bows, or put them on spectacular over the top hair bows. I think it’s a totally cute idea and no tutorial needed. I added a rhinestone bow to the pumpkin. I like adding googly eyes or rhinestones to give it something extra. They aren’t glued together very well out of the package, so you’ll want to reinforce them. It’s so easy, I listed these for really cheap in the SewsNBows Etsy shop. Look for more holiday bows coming soon!
Cute Owl Clippie for Thanksgiving- Fall Holiday Bows With Dollar Store Felties
The reason I’m writing this post is because of a discussion I saw in a Facebook group. Stephanie of Swoodson Says posted her cute pumpkin appliqué tutorial & pattern recently. It’s a really fun, easy DIY for fall, she has great tips for using Wonder Under. She received a social media comment that (paraphrasing here) “surely anyone could do that without being shown”. The rude comment wasn’t a big deal, but it got me thinking about how some of my easiest projects end up getting lots of blog traffic. Stephanie joked that she’s been wanting to post her painted acorns, with a tutorial: 1) Paint acorns.

Simple projects on Pinterest got me to start sewing again after a ten year hiatus. I love Stephanie’s blog and I love her pumpkin appliqué. I really, really love easy craft and sewing projects. So here’s my painted acorn post. Surely anyone can glue a feltie to a hair bow. But aren’t mine fun?!!

Hello. I'm Amy and I'm addicted to sewing. I borderline-hoard fabric, buttons, & patterns. Sometimes I wish I could pile my fabric up on the floor and just roll in it!

    I can remember the first time I Googled how to use fusible webbing for an appliqué. Both my daughter and I were reading the instructions trying to make sense of them and relate it to our appliqué. Yeah, hard to see now why it was hard for us, but it was. Bottom line – everything is easy once you know how. Some of my tutorials are aimed at absolute beginners and they thank me for making it easy for them.

    I for one have never painted an acorn… LOL!!! Have never even seen one, for that matter. Love your hair bows. You could do a post on tips for using a glue gun – seriously. I’ve only used one on a couple of occasions and I made such a mess, I avoid it at all costs. I need help, even if it’s #%^$ obvious to everyone else.
