Wool Felt Ball Coasters

Did anyone on your list just buy a home or move into a new apartment? These cute wool felt ball coasters are easily made with just three supplies. For a more festive gift, choose holiday colors for the felt balls.


Blankets make great gifts, and would you believe that you can make some great knit ones in less than an hour? With the right yarn, you definitely can! The super chunky yarn makes for an extra cozy blanket. When you follow this arm knit blanket tutorial, you’ll have a blanket for yourself or a loved one in no time.


Rugs are great all year round, not just during the colder months. This pom pom rug is perfect if you have a lot of scrap yarn. It’s fairly easy to complete, as well, and you can have fun choosing different colors. It’s sure to feel much cozier on your feet than the cold hardwood floors in the winter.


Slippers are perfect for the frigid temperatures. What’s even better is that you can make them using old sweaters! A few supplies and just a couple steps, and you’ll have cozy slippers for you or a friend.
