A few months ago now in one of my monthly crafty creatives box I received a needle felting kit. I have made some felt before using different techniques but not given it a go since A Level art so I was super excited to receive this and learn a new technique.
In the kit you got a piece of foam, some felt and a needle. The process itself is very simple and I couldn't quite believe how easy it was to do. The kit also provided the instructions and ideas on how to male some very lovely leaves. Below was my first attempt. I dont think it was very successful and definitely could have done better with the light green colour. Anyway I loved the process of needle felting and had a few ideas. It wasn't until earlier this week I actually got a chance to create something. I am useless for sticking to an idea. I do like to dabble so I was pleased I pursued my original idea of making a necklace.
This was the needle provided in the crafty creatives box. After doing a little research on the internet about needle felting and the possibilities, I discovered you can use multiple needles. Well I have to get myself one.
Here it is in its glory. Love it. It kinda looks like a little alien from Star Trek or something.
I also got myslef a few more exciting colours. This type of thing excites me some what. They look so pretty all together. Kinda don't want to use them. Ha!
And here is what I did. I absolutely love the bow at the top. Its almost like a bow tie. Very fun. I found some really fun chains from Forever21 and themed the felt around them. Im not totally sure about the size. I might experiment with different sizes and more than one, maybe. I dunno yet. Anyway I hope you like them? I think they are quite fun as a statement piece. Let me know what you think.
