Felt album covers

Upcycle vintage Christmas albums with felt and fusible threads for kitschy wall art.

Materials needed:

  • Vintage Christmas albums bought from a flea market, Goodwill, Salvation Army, or from your parent’s basement
  • Felt scraps—or purchased felt shapes which you can often find in craft stores this time of year
  • Kreinik Treasure Tape 4” x 6” sheets (you will probably use at least one per felt shape)
  • Kreinik Christmas Classics, Christmas Lights, or Christmas Retro iron-on threads on cards, in Medium Braid and 1/8” Ribbon* (on sale at www.kreinik.com)
  • Craft iron or home iron
  • Adhesive Press Cloth (small if using a craft iron, large if using a home iron)

Instructions:

  1. If your iron isn’t coated with a non-stick surface, you will need to place the Adhesive Press Cloth on the iron plate. Do this while the iron is cool. Simply peel off the backer and lay the press cloth on the iron plate, smoothing out any wrinkles and bubbles. This coating will keep the adhesive in the thread from sticking to your iron.
  2. Turn your iron on to the highest heat setting and let it heat thoroughly.
  3. Meanwhile, cut out tree shapes or ornament shapes from your felt scraps. Use the album artwork as a guide for patterns.
  4. Lay the double-sided Treasure Tape on the back of your felt shapes (trim the tape as needed so no tape is showing on the front side). Then peel back the tape’s pink liner and lay the felt on your albums as desired.
  5. Using the iron-on thread, put the thread at the a desired starting point and press with your hot iron for several seconds until the thread adheres. Continue this way, pressing the fiber as desired. For video showing how to use the iron-on threads, visit HOW-TO on www.kreinik.com; click on the Iron-on Threads section. * If you are making lots of albums and need spools of thread, we suggest Kreinik Iron-on 1/8” Ribbon and Medium #16 Braid in green, gold, silver, and red shades
