Felt Party Games

I find old fashioned party games like "pin the tail on the donkey" to be classics and still favorites among children today!

In order to spruce up the vintage version, I decided I wanted to design a line of custom felt party games that would coordinate with the party color-scheme and theme. If you want a custom felt party game for your next party, please e-mail us at, and we will contact you as promptly as possible to discuss your options! We love custom orders!

You may remember the Ice Cream "stick the cherry on top of the sundae" game I created for the Ice Cream Birthday Party earlier this year.

Well here is my second game, and I think you may find it to be sweet eye candy!

I just completed this fun "stick the gum ball in the gum ball machine" felt game, in bright pink at the client's request, and thought it would be fun to share!

I hand made the game out of felt, incorporating orange, lime, and light pink to contrast the bright pink.

The top features an awning stripe with scalloped edges.

Loose gum balls are scattered at the base of the gum ball machine.

The gum ball machine itself features a globe full of the brightly colored gum balls.

And the base of the gum ball machine includes a hand stitched "5 cents" slot for "coins" and a stitched outline where the gum ball usually comes out of the machine, where the children playing the game are trying to best fit their gum ball.

Each gum ball piece has a hand stitched number on it so everyone knows who's piece is who's, and velcro is attached to the back to stick right on to the game!

I wished the girls at the party would have enjoy playing the game as much as I did making it! Unfortunately due to a delay on behalf of the shipping carrier (I am still incredibly disappointed about it), it did not arrive in time for the party.

i love that idea. my sister in law is having an ice cream themed birthday for her daughter in september and we were discussing what kind of game to do, and came up with a similar idea, but not using felt. just perfect- maybe a custom order coming your way?
