7 DIY Felting Projects For The Holiday Season

If you’re a tried and true crafter, you probably already know about felting – but I just discovered this art form and I’m loving it! Not only is felting quite easy to learn, it’s also fairly inexpensive to get a starter kit of supplies (think under $50). The process involves transforming a specific type of wool into shapes using a barbed needle. Due to the texture of the wool, the most popular felting projects tend to be animals.

If you’re getting into felting this year, here are 7 DIY felting projects to try this holiday season.

These festive stockings are just the thing you need to accent your fireplace this holiday season. The tutorial involves both sewing and felting but can still be done in a few hours, depending on how fast you are with the needle. The best part? Since you will be needle felting the stripes onto the fabric, you can choose any colour or combination of colours you wish!
