Needle-Felted Heart Diffuser Charms DIY Tutorial
With Valentine’s Day approaching, my mind has been on hearts and roses since New Year’s Day! I’m a huge fan of both, so thinking about the cute things I could make with either, has had my brain bubbling with ideas for weeks! These needle-felted heart charms are so easy and fun to make for your Valentines!
Now, it seems that my YouTube audience, and quite a few of my blog’s readers, really like my needle-felting tutorials! **Squeeee!!**
These teeny little hearts can be made any size, but the video tutorial is for a necklace charm size (about 1 cm). The embellishments can range, so use your imagination and style to really make them your own!
My jewelry charm heart, I embellished with some seed pearls in the shape of a flower, and to the car diffuser charms, I added some pre-made fabric butterflies. I have had those butterflies FOREVER, wondering what to do with them, but with spring coming, the ideas are starting to simmer 🙂
What is a Diffuser Charm?
For those of us who are into aromatherapy, they are a way to wear essential oils and other natural scents without putting them directly on our skin. I still dilute mine, and recommend everyone else dilute properly too—especially if you are putting them in your car! Improper dilution can result in headaches, dizziness—even seizures! Essential oils are nothing to take lightly.
That being said, when I have a cold? Some mildly diluted peppermint and eucalyptus are nice to drop onto a necklace diffuser charm, and the scent wafts lightly around me, without bringing the “cold burn” of these diluted oils on my skin.
When it’s 300° in my car—and someone left a dirty diaper in the backseat? A little diluted orange or lemon essential oil dropped on my rear-view mirror diffusers make the ride bearable.
These little charms are so easy and fun to make! Also, in the world of needle-felting? These don’t take long at all to felt. I see visions of mobiles, wall hangings, pillow tassels, and hoop-art appliqués of these little hearts in your crafting future.
