Holiday Craft: Felted Vegetable Ornaments
I have a confession. I have never felted before. I have wanted to try it for awhile now, but I just didn't know what to create. Then it dawned on me. Our Christmas tree is filled with many homemade ornaments. Each one tells a story or brings back fond memories. This was the perfect setting for trying my hand at felting.
I started out with these ornaments made with pre-made felted balls. I wanted to keep this project simple, given the sheer fact that I was new to this craft.
Overall, I picked up needle felting rather quickly. These were fun to make and I think they add an adorable touch of garden whimsy to the tree this year.
- Pre-made felt balls
