As I was browsing through the Pottery Barn Kids catalog a few weeks ago, I fell in love with some little felt ships they were selling for Thanksgiving. Unfortunately they were all sold out, so I had to get creative and make my own!
|The finished base.|
|Glue the spool to the bottom of the ship to help the dowel stand straight.|
4. Next take your wood spool (or any other method you will be using to keep your dowel standing straight), and glue it into the inside of your ship, right in the middle. I used my trusty glue gun.
5. Cut a rectangle out of your white or cream felt, and cut a small slit in the top and another slit in the bottom. Stick your dowel through the slits for the sail of the ship.
|The finished product!|
|Add crayons or small treats to keep the kids busy.|
