A few weeks back I showed you my Winter Wonderland craft supplies, including my pretty wool tops for needle felting. Needle felting is a craft that uses special barbed needles, where the barbs on the needles catch the scales on the fibre and push them through the layers of wool, tangling and binding them together to create a felt. It is a great technique for creating 2D and 3D felt shapes.
Today I share with you the needle felted roses I have been making to adorn my Christmas yarn wreath and decorate my Christmas tree with. I made them in various sizes by altering the number of felted hearts I used in the roses. I also made some leaves with green merino tops.
I used a pen-style needle felting tool with a guard on it, which prevents punching the needles too far into the mat. You can find the equipment you will need to make the roses for purchase in my Amazon store.
