This felt frog tissue holder is a fun and easy way to keep kids hopping back from a runny nose. Pop a friendly felt frog tissue holder in their backpack to keep them prepared.

I loved the idea of this because he reminds me of Kermit the Frog, an old family favorite. This DIY project is quick and easy and can be sewn by machine or hand in a matter of minutes. To save time on the eyes, feel free to hot glue the black eye pieces onto the white and glue those to the green base.

Here's what you need to make your own felt frog tissue holder

- green, white, black felt
- embroidery floss (pink, white and black) and needle

- sewing machine OR needle and thread (green to match green felt)
Here's what you'll do to make your own felt frog tissue holder
Begin by measuring your green felt and cutting to size by wrapping around your tissue package.
Now thread your embroidery needle and stitch your frog's nose and mouth into place. Then cut your four eye pieces (2 black and 2 white) and stitch the black inner eye to the outer eye and stitch the entire piece to the green felt.
Fold the green felt over the tissue package to confirm size.
Take out tissue package and pin then sew.
Finish edges with pinking shears if desired.
Say goodbye to sad sniffles at least the froggy should raise the mood!
