Felt Pizza! Make a Pepperoni Pizza Out of Felt Fabric
Kids, parents and even professional crafters have begun to discover one of the newest, most creative, and most fun craft crazes to come along in years—felt food.
From plump and healthful purple eggplants to homemade (and kid-made!) pork chops and melt-in-your-mouth ice cream sundaes, there are hundreds of fun, silly, and just plain scrumptious craft projects that can be created from felt fabric.
While some felt food projects require a pattern and some sewing knowledge, other projects can be completed in just a few steps using a few sheets of felt material.
To make the felt pizza, you will need:
- Felt: Sheets of beige, white and red
- A writing pen (Air-soluble fabric pen if available)
- A ruler (optional)
With the proper supplies, it's time to get started.
Step # 1
Use a pen to trace an 8-inch-wide circle on the beige felt sheet. Using the scissors, cut along the traced line to make the pizza crust.
Step # 2
Trace a 7-inch-wide circle on the red felt sheet. Cut along the traced line to make the pizza sauce.
Step # 3
Cut small rectangular strips out of the white felt sheet to make shredded mozzarella cheese.
Step # 4
Trace several 1-inch-wide circles on the red felt sheet. Cut along the traced lines to make the pieces of pepperoni.
Step # 5
It's time to put the pizza together!
- Lay down the 8 inch beige circle for the crust.
- Place the 7 inch red circle on top of the beige circle for the pizza sauce.
- Place the small white felt strips on top of the pizza sauce for the mozzarella cheese.
- Place the small red circles on top of the cheese for the pepperoni.
- Enjoy the pie!
- Making toppings for your felt pizza is a great way to use your imagination and to make your creation even more delectable. Green peppers, black olives, mushrooms etc... The possibilities are endless!
- To make the circles, simply trace around the outside of any appropriate household item (the bottom of a bowl) or use a circular cardboard or paper cut out.
- Glue or double-sided tape may be used to hold the felt pieces together. Self-adhesive felt is also available in many stores.
- Different types of
felt material may be used to make felt food, but acrylic felt is
one of the more affordable and widely manufactured types of the fabric. Wool felt is also popular, but is more expensive.
- For more advanced felt projects, a sewing machine and stuffing material can be used to create three-dimensional felt foods.
