My little boy turned five in March, and he insisted on having a pizza party with some of his friends to celebrate. When I started scouring Pinterest, I saw this darling pizza party, and even though I wasn't about to throw a party as complex as that one, I instantly fell in love with the felt pizzas. I knew that I had to try making my own felt pizzas as party favors. I'm not a huge sewer, so I simplified some things, and I also used Silhouette Printable Heat Transfer Material and Printable Sticker Paper to add some fun details. I love how these DIY Felt Pizza Party Favors turned out, and I got so many nice messages from the moms telling me how their kids played and played with them after they got home! Here's how I made them…
Here's what you need to make your own Felt Pizzas:
Step 1: Cut two 8 inch circles from tan felt. Then, cut the circles in quarters.
Step 2: Stitch the outside rounded edges of two quarters together using a blanket stitch.
Step 3: Use a piece of batting to form a crust inside the two pieces of felt. Stitch around the crust. Repeat with the remaining felt to create a whole pizza. Use hot glue to connect the loose corners of each piece.
Step 4: Print pizza toppings, grouped by color, on printable heat transfer material. I used this image, but there are lots of free graphics too! Then, apply the heat transfer material to the corresponding felt color, and cut out the toppings.
Note: You can skip the heat transfer step and just cut toppings out of felt, but I LOVE the extra detail from the heat transfer, AND it makes cutting super easy because you don't need to trace anything or use a stencil since the shapes are printed.
Step 5: Cut a 7 inch circle out of red felt, then cut in quarters.
Step 6: Cut a 6 inch circle (wavy edge optional) out of cream felt, then cut in quarters.
Step 7: Place a piece of checkered tissue paper in the pizza box.
Step 8: Now the fun part… Time to assemble the pizza! Crust, sauce, cheese, toppings…
Step 9: Print a label for the pizza box on the Printable Sticker Paper, and apply it to the box. I made this personalized label using Photoshop, and it cracks me up every time I see it!
Can you believe how cute these are?! My kids still love playing with theirs, and I love seeing them engage in imaginative play.
