By:

2 Comments

Decorate your Easter home with a softer touch this season, thanks to the popularity of needlefelting and the versatility of STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam.
 

Needlefelted Easter Eggs
 

Materials:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam:
    • Block, 1" x 4" x 10"
    • Eggs, 6", two
  • Wool fiber (roving), six complementary colors
  • Wool felt flowers, eight complementary colors
  • Angelina fibers (optional)
  • Ribbon, 1/4" x 2/3 yd.
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Needlefelting tool
  • Straight pins, at least one a colored ball-head pin
  • Low-temp glue gun and glue sticks
  • Thick, white craft glue
     

Steps:

(Note: Felting needles are extremely sharp; use caution. The higher the needle number, the finer the needle and the smaller the hole left in the project. Follow manufacturer's instructions.)

  1. Place small amount of wool fiber against foam egg and attach to surface using felting needle; follow manufacturer's instructions to ensure safety. Continue felting fiber to foam until completely covered, creating either a solid-color background or varying colors to create stripes.
     
  2. Place wool felt flowers onto foam block. Roll very small balls of wool fiber and needlefelt into flower centers.
     
  3. If desired, wrap Angelina fiber strands around egg and secure with needlefelting tool. Glue finished flowers around center of striped egg; pin to secure until glue dries.
     
  4. For second egg, place small circles of wool fiber onto egg, varying colors, and needlefelt to secure. Needlefelt slightly smaller circles into centers of first group as shown. Add Angelina fiber strands to egg, if desired.
     
  5. Cut one 7" and one 16" ribbon length. Loop longer length and glue ends to top of egg. Fold shorter length into loopy bow; stick ball-head pin through bow center into top of egg. Spot glue pin and ribbon to secure.

I made a adorabal purple egg with light blue polka dots on it it was FUN , simple , and as crafts go I find needle felting a very Self contained hobby , unlike scrapbooking/sewing/beading were you need (at least I do anyway a whole table , and then i sitll have a bin or two on the floor ) I have a room i want to make into a craft room and I had started however it was SOO hot up there this past summer that i ended up hauling everythig including a book case into my living room and here it stays ... However with needle felting , you can get a cardbord file box (they sell them now (march,april,may for fileing your taxes for only a few $'s ) & all your sulpulys fit into that box with quite a bit of extra space , and u can get smaller bags for your wool and a smaller pencil case for your needles , and you can sit with lap tray , or any type of firm surfice so you dont POKE yourself , and sit and do your needle felting and then slip everthing back into the box when done and put the cover on and instant storage that looks nice !!! And for anyone who has not given needle felting a try ... try it , it's creative , fun , very easy ..I picked it up by looking at one website and just TRYING it ... and now i've made eggs , and Mini Chick and a little blue bird ! .. sooo sweet .. and you can make more practical items like flowers for pins , and well possibalitysare endlss ... I really think EVERYONE should try this at least once !!!

Precioso proyecto y tambien super rapido y facil para realizarlo me encanto. Muy agradecida. Besos.
