Wool Felted Fairy Garden

When I was doing some research for my Appa and Momo costumes for Halloween, I found this cute picture. I had never even heard of needle felting before, but after seeing what awesome things you could make, I had to attempt it.

I ordered some wool and supplies from The Silver Penny. They had a really good price on plain natural wool, so I decided to dye some of it myself with green Kool-Aid following this tutorial. It worked perfectly so I continued roughly following the rest of the tutorial to make a felted playscape for Ivy.

She was ecstatic Christmas morning to discover her very own fairy garden. The garden wouldn't be complete without fairies, of course, so I ordered these ones, as well as a bridge and boat.

Ivy also got this Melissa and Doug Treehouse to go along with the fairy garden.

The night before Christmas, Ivy asked so sweetly if Santa could bring something for Bunny. So how could he not?
I also tried making a few needle felted sculptures, like this Rudolph ornament.
And it's only natural to make a sheep out of wool, right?
Don't worry, Maren wasn't left out.
Making these girls happy is so worth it.
