With ANZAC Day services cancelled this year, a felted poppy craft project is a thoughtful way to mark respect from your home base.
Nancy Ballesteros, owner of Australian felting supply company, Treetops Colour Harmonies suggests that the Poppies could then be hung outside from a tree, similar to the old idea of ‘tie a yellow-ribbon to the old Oak tree’ for ANZAC Day. They could also be placed in a window.
Felting is a wonderful way to get children involved in craft and it’s fun for the whole family!
