today I would like to share a new hand felted with you. I made this nest in the early summer believe it or not and had to wait until now to share it with you. It is hand felted made from a lambswool sweater that was made in Ireland ~ they are the best ~ and I used many different textured and colored wools to give it the look it has. I made little paper holly leaves that I embellished by staining the edges, adding a crackle glaze and finally ultra fine glitter for a little touch of frost. My final touch was little pine cones and pipberries also touched ... I mean kissed by the frost.
I love everything about this nest!
If you look at my free tutorials on the right sidebar you will find the 'felted nest tutorial' and the 'kissed by the frost' tutorial just waiting for you to start and create something beautiful! Maybe it could be a gift for your friend or a relative for Christmas or a gift to yourself made by yourself!
I hope you are well and life is treating you kind my dear friends.
Have a peaceful and creative day,

This is absolutely over the top beautiful!!!! Wish I wasn't deathly allergic to wool, as I would stop what I am doing and be running off to create something that would no doubt only be a shadow of your creative greatness. No matter that it is 2 a.m. here LOLReplyDelete

Hi Karen, I immediately fell in love with these holly leaves and had to make a few myself. I included a link back to you in my post here http://shabbyteaparty.blogspot.com/2012/11/another-burlap-wreath.html. Thanks for the inspiration! Warm Hugs,ReplyDelete
