Needle Felted Santa with Fir Tree
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 to hold. I still need to tweak a few areas here and there before I feel he is complete but I really love how he is turning out, oh and if you’re wondering how big he is, Santa only stands about 5″.
