|My fluffy little creations! Including Gay Pride Santa, who is fabulous.|
Hooray! It is the first Christmas post of this year, and I have discovered a new craft! And it's the Simplest yet!
|Beginning the pomander, on sponge, with official needle|
All you need is some sponge, one or four of the official felting needles, and the right fluffy wool (available relatively expensively, compared to knitting wool) on the internet in various places and many many colours. (P.S. you can even use cat hair. Seriously, google it.)
THEN YOU STAB IT UNTIL IT LOOKS AWESOME.
|Adding more layers of colour is easy|
All of these lovely things are so easy to make it's not true - just wrap the wool into shape and stab it until it sticks. The more you stab, the denser the material becomes and the less pliable. You would not believe how small a tuft you need for making eyes or dots with - just a few hairs, seriously.
