We love camping in the great outdoors so making this DIY Felt Campfire was a must. This felt campfire is an easy project to create with the tutorial and free pattern that I am sharing today. It should take less than three hours to make and your kids are sure to love it as much as mine do!
We have been enjoying the cooler weather and getting totally crafty this season. If you love crafting with the kids you should check out our felt monster finger puppets or felt owie owls too!

Just saw this in Facebook! My granddaughter loves to camp, so I see a birthday present in the near future!
Awwww that would be so cute! Do you mind me asking where on Facebook? We can’t seem to find the source but I am so glad that you found us :)
Wow, this is so awesome!! I’ve linked to your tutorial on Craft Gossip:
Adorable! What boy or girl wouldn’t want to play with this?
Perfect for all kids for sure!
How fun! This is such a great idea and so cute! Pinning!
I printed the pattern for the campfire, but I do not see where it tells you the size you cut the parts out to be. Is the photo of all the pieces to be used , to be cut out as the pattern for each piece??? Would like to make this soon. Awaiting your response.
If you have printed the pattern full size on 8.5 x 11 paper then you would cut it out to use as a pattern pinned to each piece of felt. Hope that helps!
I hope that you received my email Kathy. Happy creating!
Thanks so much for such an awesomely cute idea! Just finished sewing mine up and have plans to make another set for a friend’s children. I’ve only been sewing for a couple months, so, this was a great simple practice project. It is going to go great with the teepee my son has. I can’t wait to finish stuffing everything tomorrow so I can let him play with it!
I am SOOOO making this. I looked on Land of Nod and their’s is super cute but also expensive! Yikes! My son plays pretend campfire everyday with nothing so he will flip out for this. Thank you for the easy tutorial :) Cant wait to share it with my readers!
Have fun and thanks for visiting!! xo
This felt campfire is genius! What an awesome idea! Thank you so much for sharing! Love it! It was featured here: https://www.plushiepatterns.com/diy-felt-campfire-tutorial-pattern/
I am making my 4th campfire set now. I’ve made it for two of my grandsons already and they love it. I also made a felt S’More Kit with it that has graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate bars that are stored in a decorated plastic box. So cute! Thank you so much for the idea and pattern!
That is wonderful!!! :)
Thanks so much for this tutorial and pattern. My daughter-in-law asked if I could make a pretend camp fire similar to the one on Land of Nod, then I found your tute and pattern! I plan to give it a go, so will let you know…
Can you tell me the dimensions of the large marshmallow rectangle? My printer isn’t printing the entire pattern. Thanks!
I’m sorry I no longer have the original pattern to measure.. I hope that it worked out for you!
I downloaded the patterns but do not see a pattern for the oval at the bottom of the fire. I only saw one page with the flames. Do you have a pattern for the bottom oval? Thanks for your help.
Yes, it should be with the other downloads…
Forgive me, but I am confused. The logs say cut 10, but only cut 4 tan. Wouldn’t you double the tan to put on all the logs? Is there supposed to be 10 logs? Thanks, Donna
Never mind, I think I figured out the log part, but are the square x 10 and the oval x 10 the rocks and do you sew two together to make one rock? Why do you only make tan x 4 when you make 3 logs? Wouldn’t that mean x 6? Sorry to ask so many questions, I am just not understanding. Thank You so much! Donna
Yes, the x10 are rocks and yes, 6 tan pieces for the logs. Sorry for the confusion xo
Three logs :)
I tried making this and the fire did not come out this good with the template provided. The template is hand drawn and are not straight. The oval and the circles are not a good shape. I wish the template shapes were more accurate and straight. I wasted a lot of felt for nothing!
Sorry to hear that you were disappointed :(
Thank you for this awesome little camp fire. I just made a set for my nephews and niece and it’s such a hit! You’re brilliant ?
Oh I’m so glad!! Thanks for sharing <3
