Look! Presto Felt Is An Eco-Friendly Craft Option

We're the first to yell spray paint! when it comes to making over a thrifted or vintage find that needs a little sprucing up. Although eco-friendly spray paint options exist, they aren't easy to come by, so when we were at the craft store last week, a new product caught our attention. Can you guess what it's made from?

Although more traditional felt is just as eco-friendly since it's made from wool, it doesn't come with this neato self-adhesive backing (which is non-toxic). Presto Felt from Eco-Fi is made from 100% post-consumer plastic from recycled bottles.

You can use felt to cover lamps, lampshades, tin cans for pencil/paint brush holders, add a bottom to a vase or figure that might scratch your tabletops and more. Presto Felt retails for roughly $1 per sheet, making it a green product as well as easy on the pocketbook.

What would you cover with felt if you had the chance? A notebooks? Puzzle blocks for children? Leave us your thoughts below.
