Needle Felting With Wool!


Easy Needle Felted Christmas Ornaments Using Cookie Cutters and Raw Wool!


I try to make handmade gifts each year to give to my family. This year I'm short on time so I needed to come up with an idea that I could do quickly. I bought a Jacob wool fleece at the sheep and wool festival and thought it would be perfect to use for holiday gift making. Don't worry, you do not need a fleece. this works just as well with roving. I didn't get a full tutorial done but it's really quite easy. Below is a quick synopsis of what I did.

This is a fun way to make ornaments for the whole family. Just grab some wool roving or raw clean wool and a starter needle felting kit (under $20). Stuff your cookie cutter with wool and stab lightly with the needles. The wool immediately begins to felt.


Above the cutter has been filled with roving and felted. Make sure you flip it over several times to felt it completely. You can add wool to make it as thick as possible. I later added darker brown wool to the top and bottom of the mitten and free handed a design on each mitten. Finish your ornament by going around all the edges.

 I used wool yarn as the hanger and needle felted that to the top of the ornament. I made 2 mittens and connected them.


When you start feeling more confident try other cookie cutters, like this gingerbread man. One caution: be careful with these needles, they are sharp.


*I've made several sculptures also. I'll do a post later showing them.





Happy  Holidays and Thank you for reading!

Loom Knit Candy Cane Ornaments!

Quick & Easy I-Cord Christmas Ornaments


Nothing says Christmas like the humble Candy Cane. This is a great project to do with older children who are interested in learning to loom.  Each candy cane can be made in under 15 minutes. Follow the easy tutorial below.

1.  Make an 8 inch i-cord on the loom (any loom is fine, the large plastic looms were used to make the above samples) Use Super Bulky Yarn, Wool Ease thick and quick (Red Beacon) was used in samples.
Foundation Row:  E-wrap Cast on 3 pegs.
Row 1:  Knit peg 1, knit peg 3, knit peg 2.
Repeat row 1 until knitting is 8" long, then bind off.

2.  Thread your cast off tail through a yarn needle and thread your end through the back of the knitting, coming out where you would like the bend of your candy cane to be.


3. Secure the bend in your candy cane by going back and forth between the sides twice. Secure and weave in your end.

4.  Add a quick hanger by threading a piece of yarn through your knitting and tying a knot at the end. Adorn them with a bow or wind colorful yarn around plainer colored canes securing as you go by threading the yarn through loops on the back.

TIP:  These would be really cute made into a garland!

Enjoy the Holidays and Happy Looming! Thank you for reading.
