2 Ways to Needle Felt Eggs

2 Ways to Needle Felt Eggs #needle #felted #eggs #easter #spring #chick #rabbit #marbled

Always fancied needle felting but didn’t know where to start? These cute spring themed felted eggs are ideal for beginners, as their small size and easy design makes them easy to achieve. Make a few and display in your home for a spring fresh feel, or give them away as alternatives to chocolate eggs!

Marbled Eggs

You Will Need How to Make

1. Take one of the polystyrene eggs from the pack. Cover the entire surface in a layer of white merino roving and stab the entire surface evenly using the Clover pen tool.

2. Separate out some thin pieces of bright pink roving and pull apart so they look thin and a little wispy, with thicker and thinner areas.

3. Lay the pink roving over your white felted egg base and use the pen tool to stab into place. You want to ensure that you don’t have too many blocks of colour to achieve a marbled effect.

4. If you need to, repeat steps 2 and 3 to build up a little more colour to your egg.

 

 

 

 Chick and Bunny Eggs

You Will Need How to Make

1. To make the chic and bunny eggs I have used two of the larger polystyrene eggs from my pack. Cover the entire surface in a layer of pistachio merino roving and stab the entire surface evenly using the Clover pen tool.

2. To make the chick body, lay out some of the light yellow into a pear shape, folding the ends under if necessary.

3. Stab it into place in the centre of one of the green eggs. You can use a single needle to tidy up the edges.

4. Add a little orange to create the beak, the legs and the wing.

6. To make the shape of the bunny body, lay out small lengths of the white merino wool onto your pad so they resemble the two shapes in the photos.
