Haberdashery Ideas for Glitter Felt


One of our most popular products recently has been our selection of glitter felt. It’s been flying into baskets and off to the homes of our lovely customers to add some funk and pizazz into their haberdashery projects.

Glitter has been at the forefront of fashion, textiles and festivals over the past couple of years and despite it hogging the limelight for so long, glitter has once again dominated the 2018 runways and trends. Having showed itself to be the belle of the ball in New York’s & London Fashion week, glitter is still infiltrating every corner of design and we love it! 

We’ve enjoyed seeing all the beautiful things you’ve made out of your new glitter felt and we wanted to give you more ideas on what you can do with one of our favourite new pieces of fabric:


Glitter Pencil Case
Make your desk sparkle with a homemade glittery pencil case. You can use one colour or mix and match to make a geometric pattern that will make your stationary stand out a mile and bring some brightness to your week days! 

Glitter Bow
Bows are back! Especially for the little people in your life; so why not create your own glittery hair bow, a clip, a brooch, a bag accessory or to sew to a piece of clothing? They can be an accessory to go with everything and for every season

Glitter Coated Shoes
Not that we recommend you go parading about in the rain in them, but reupholstering a pair of old shoes and creating a glitter party on your feet is a great use of our glitter felt, and a cheaper way of jazzing up an old pair of shoes! 

Christmas Decorations
We know, we know it’s February - Christmas JUST happened… But we can’t deny that glitter is basically the trademark of Christmas. We’re not saying you have to make them now, but when the most wonderful time of the year rolls around again, we recommend you use our glitter felt to cut out angels, pieces of holly, antlers, Christmas trees, baubles… You get the idea

Glitter Party Crown
Rather than paper hats or cone party hats, why not make an extra special party crown that can be pulled out for special occasions? We’re thinking birthdays, graduations, hen do/stag do, Christmas… Any excuse to wear a big sparkly crown hey?!


Glitter Earrings
You can either buy some plain earrings in a shape of your choice and use the felt to go on top, or you can create the earrings from scratch yourself. There’s an array of options and styles when it comes to crafting your own earrings; whether it’s using wood, metal or plastic, you can incorporate our glitter felt into your earrings however you want

Glitter Stairs
If you want to tie glitter in with your home decor in a way that isn’t too permanent but beautiful all the same, we suggest using our glitter felt on the vertical drop part of each stair to bring some magic into your home and something a little unexpected. We’re not planning on this lasting a lifetime but it’s a great idea for something temporary! 


Glitter Bookshelf
Similarly to the glitter steps, why not line the back of a bookshelf with glitter felt and set your books against the Hollywood backdrop they deserve? You could even create a rainbow effect but using multiple colours for each shelf

Faux Glitter Flowers
You can either create whole roses from manipulating and cutting the glitter felt to make a whole bouquet of glittery flowers, or you could mix them in with a real bouquet for the full effect. If you’re not too skilled in the making of felt flowers, you could gift wrap a bouquet of flowers in the felt instead and present the one you love with a handful of glitter like they’ve never had before!

Unicorn Horn
Now, this is using the glitter felt for its true purpose: becoming a unicorn! Use an old headband and create your ears using a soft fabric, before then craft your horn! Whatever material you choose to use as the mould for your horn, be sure to wrap our glitter felt carefully around it to create the magical finished product!

Glitter Cards
One of the more obvious ideas to do with our glitter felt but still one we’d like to mention, is creating  cards with them. Birthdays, Christmas, anniversary, congratulations, good luck etc… Any positive message you’d like to give to a friend, say it with a glittery card

Glitter Dog Collar
Think your dog is the fanciest in town? Why not prove it by covering their collar in glitter?! To avoid any discomfort, we recommend only attaching the felt to the outside of the collar rather than round it - so do this and watch the canine heads turn whilst your fancy dog flashes its sparkles!

Fairy Fancy Dress
We all know about the magic stuff that is glittery fairy dust. It covers fairies’ clothes, their hair and wings. Why not bring a fairy to life in fancy dress and adorn the costume in glitter, using our glitter felt for the wings, to cut shapes out of or to use in a headpiece
