Teeny Tiny Needle Felted Terrarium

Oct 20, 2014

I’ve been in Beaumont helping mom and dad with a few of their aches and pains these past few weeks so while I’m sitting in the evenings I’ve been doing some needle felting. Over the weekend, I decided to give it a go at making a teeny tiny terrarium. The jar for this terrarium is only 2″ x 2″. Which means the mushrooms and gnome house are really tiny. The tallest mushroom measures 1″ and the gnome house is only .75″ and I LOVE the teeny tiny acorn cap used as the roof. Mom and dad have some super tiny acorns on their oak tree that are perfect for these little houses. It’s a battle between me and the squirrel on who gets them first. I plan on making several more of these teeny tiny needle felted terrariums because...

Needle Felted Doll

Oct 14, 2014

I’m in Beaumont for a bit getting mom and dad taken care of, they are nicknamed Gimp 1 and Gimp 2, at the moment. Dad has a nerve in his leg bothering him and mom has a knee that wont straighten. Between the two of them they are quite the pair. When I arrived last week my youngest niece, Isabella came down with a 24 hour tummy bug so while watching her for a few hours I made her a needle felted doll. She picked the wool colors and instructed me on how she wanted her doll to look. Collaborating with kids on a project is really fun. She loves her doll and I was ever so happy to make it for her. The tummy bug hit my niece Madelyn, last night. I’m really hoping...

Needle Felted Santa with Fir Tree

Oct 13, 2014

I’ve been having loads of fun needle felting. I started this Santa over the weekend and thought I would share with you a few photos of him in the works. If any of you are interested in learning this art form let me know and I will gladly put together a tutorial of a simple project for beginners. Here is my Santa before adding his rosey cheeks, eyes and eyebrows. It’s fun to see the personality of your piece come to life once you add these features. Every needle felted piece has it’s own unique look. And here is Santa with his facial features and a bit more fluff added to his beard. Love his rosey cheeks. I decided this Santa needed a prop so what better item than a small fir tree for him...
