One day I went a little crazy at Jo-Ann Fabrics and bought a bunch of felt, with the intention of doing something crafty with it. This was two years ago and I still haven’t done anything with the felt. As I was perusing Etsy for some inspiration on finally using the felt, I stumbled upon Sugar Snap Boutique. Let’s just say folks, it was love at first sight.
SUGAR SNAP where we specialize in creating felt wedding accessories and decorations. We offer 100 different felt shades and are happy to create that one of a kind piece for your wedding or other special occasion.
Today’s post is two fold. One, it’s a normal Etsy Monday post, but also, if you are planning your wedding, this is for you!! How dreamy are these bouquets?!
This “holiday cheer” felt bouquet is gorgeous. The colors. The flowers. Swoon.
My bouquet from my wedding is hanging in my spare closest. I got the bright idea to dry it, but I’m not sure if it’s survived or not. I love the idea of using felt flowers, as they can last for years to come!!
This “Rustic Foliage” bouquet could be displayed year round! I think it’s simply lovely. And, of course, you can choose any colors. Sugar Snap Boutique offers you a bunch to choose from!
I love the idea of felt flowers as boutonnieres!
Available in 100 colors! I love the look of this Vanilla Glory Rose boutonniere on a dark suit. And, for $12, you could totally get one for your entire bridal party!
The shop’s owner, Deidre, was kind enough to answer some questions and offer you lovely readers a coupon! Use the code FRUGAL25 for 25% OFF your entire order over $10.00. It expires on December 12th. Enjoy!
1. How long does a typical felt bouquet take to make?
Creating a bouquet takes anywhere from 1 – 2 1/2 hours depending on the style the flowers and how many there are. My favorite part is the end when the flowers are wrapped in twine, photographed, and loaded onto our site That’s when the idea of mine or a customers has come to life!
2. What made you want to start an Etsy shop?
I started Sugar Snap as a creative outlet form my other shop: Kindall Krafts that I run with my husband. I wanted to create something from felt that was more artistic and lasting.
3. Your felt boutonnieres are brilliant! How did you come up with that idea?
The boutonnieres are a lot of fun because they don’t take nearly as long as the bouquets and I get to be the photographer instead of being photographed! The idea for the boutonnieres was easy; I knew I needed something to for the groom that would compliment the bride’s bouquet.
4. What was the first felt item you created?
The first felt item I created was a Halloween Thomas the Train costume for my then 3 year old son. It’s funny because back then I never would have dreamed of running my own business using the same material.
