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.

Santa in the works

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.

Santa with added facial features

And here is San­ta with his facial fea­tures and a bit more fluff added to his beard. Love his rosey cheeks.

Santa with his fir tree

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″.
