You have just entered a storybook land filled with colorful flowers, fairytale toadstools, sweet forest mice, and happy snails - all made with fluffy felt. Melissa of Hex House Crowns is a fiber artist and hand-work teacher, and she loves working with wool felt because it's soft and fuzzy and easy to transform into whatever you wish. In this class, learn how to make a felted woodland celebration crown. You'll get to know your needle felting tools by starting with a landscape for your woodland scene: wispy clouds in the sky and soft grass on the ground. Then Melissa shows how to create more three-dimensional shapes as you needle felt an amanita mushroom and a cute mouse. You can use these skills to add flowers, trees and any other friends that you can dream up. While assembling the crown, decide whether to make ribbon ties or a fabric-covered elastic band for your closure. Whoever wears this crown will look like forest royalty, friend to all animals, and you will feel like a maker of magic.
Here’s what you’ll need:
  • Felting foam and felting needles
  • Felting needle tool with multiple needles
  • 12" x 12" square of 3mm wool felt for crown base - you can also choose a 2nd felt color for the crown backing
  • Various colors of wool batting and wool roving
  • Embroidery floss or size 5 perle cotton (Melissa uses blue, teal, and pink) and embroidery needle
  • Sewing thread and sewing needle
  • Beads
  • Ribbons (at least 2 arm-lengths) to make ties or at least 9" of 3/4" elastic and a piece of cotton, linen, or silk fabric at least 18" long x 4" wide to make an elastic band
  • Safety pin
  • Sewing machine and coordinating thread
  • Scissors
  • Straight pins
  • Iron and ironing surface
