How to Make Felt Fortune Cookies

The best part of opening a fortune cookie is receiving your paper fortune, so these felt versions can save you from ingesting too many cookies! They can be reused, too, so this is a great craft for Valentine's Day, Chinese New Year, and many other celebrations.

Total Time: 45 minutes

Yield: 5 fortune cookies



  1. Place the ring of masking tape on top of a piece of felt. Trace around the ring with a pencil.
  2. Cut out the circle of felt.
  3. Repeat with other pieces of felt.
  4. Lay a piece of pipe cleaner over the circle and cut it so it's just a bit shorter than the diameter of the circle.

  6. Fold the circle in half to make an indentation at the halfway point. Unfold and use the indentation as a guide to lay down a thin line of hot glue all the way across.
  7. Lay a piece of pipe cleaner on top of the hot glue. Press down to secure. Repeat with all the circles.
  8. While the glue dries, cut out little strips of white paper shorter than the diameter of the felt circles.
  9. Handwrite your messages onto the strips of paper.

  11. To shape the circle into a fortune cookie, first fold it in half.
  12. Angle the two sides toward each other, bending the wire at its halfway point.
  13. Flip over to see the puffier side.
  14. Gently peel back one flap of the cookie and insert a fortune.
  15. Close back up. They are ready to go!
