Needle Felting Christmas Projects

I feel guilty when I wind down by watching T.V. Needle felting is the perfect craft because I can do lap projects and jab my heart out while watching my favorite programs. So far my projects have been fairly simple–pumpkins, ducks using a cookie cutter for a pattern, felting simple figures on small pillows, etc. The most adventurous project was finishing this reindeer from raw wool. I flat-felted the wool into a sheet and cut out the antlers with tiny manicure scissors. I used a slightly smaller deer Christmas ornament as a pattern for his body.

He is lonely so I am crafting a doe and fawn for a grouping. Don’t you love the look of all-white Christmas on snow with green pine trees? I can see them as a side table grouping on a bed of faux’ snow…

Welcome to Christmas!

Welcome to Christmas!
