Look, what have I made from the plain mini felt Easter eggs? I have turned them into needle felted little birds [tweet tweet] and some other cuties. Hope this will get you into the mood of spring and Easter.
Previously, you have learned how to make felted egg with wet felting, now, you can decorate the eggs into some cuties with needle felting method. This tutorial is showing needle felted little birds by adding wings, beak, eyes and tail with felt and wool. You can adapt the method and make them into egg-shaped chicks or embellish the eggs with polka dots and stripes just like those at the back. It is all up to your creativity, try to make something out of the box from the eggs.
Again, to show you how I made the needle felted little birds, I made a short video to show you the process with my bionic-women hands. I used ready-made felt mostly for the birds plus a little wool roving for it’s tail and eyes. It is a lot faster and easier to use pre-cut felt to needle felt to the birdie than jabbing the wool into a desired shape. I hope the subtitle or caption is good enough for you to read through, pause the video if you think I go too fast. I love to craft while listening to my favorite songs, or radio, or sometimes watching TV. But with this craft, I won’t recommend you to watch TV while doing needle felting. You need full concentration when you needle felt to make sure your needle is poking on the right place and not on your fingers or other places. The needle is quite sharp and easy to break if bent, so be sure you know where it goes – straight to the point.
So….. have you got your needle felting tools and materials ready? Let’s go to the tutorial and have fun piercing the eggs!!!
