If you’re a complete beginner to needle felting, we’d recommend watching Lincolnshire Fenn Crafts‘ online videos. They teach you all the basics, from creating and shaping a basic animal head, legs and body.
These embroidered beads are quick easy makes to practise your needle felting skills on. Annie and Lynn from Handmade by RosiePink have uploaded a tutorial onto their blog on making the felt beads and then embroidering them.
Using the needle felt ball tutorial above why not make your own mobile? We love this one by You Frill Me and it would make a great baby shower or house warming gift.

8. Mini needle felt owls
How adorable are these guys? Needle felt yourself some miniature owls using Lia Griffith’s tutorial. She has loads of animal DIYs on her blog so if owls don’t take your fancy you can choose another mini make.
9. Button making
At number 9 is a practical needle felt. My Poppet Makes has the tutorial for these giant buttons which you could make and pop onto any cardigans you have.

An alternative take on needle felting is Holly from Club Crafted’s rainbow pillow. Check out her tutorial to make this new addition for your bedroom.
Needle felt isn’t all about décor and animals. You can make patches and attach them to your jackets, trousers or sweaters for an upcycle embellishment. Honestly WTF has made this heart elbow patch and shows you how on her blog.
