Signs of Spring

Is anyone else hungry for spring?  Soon we will be turning the clocks forward, dying Easter eggs, and seeing little blades of green grass peek through melting snow patches.  Here is a little project to get our minds moving in this direction.

Brown Wool Roving
White Wool Roving
Felting Needle

Break out your needle felting supplies and begin to create a cup shape by needling your brown wool roving.  Start by making a circle and continue to add more roving while tipping the nest to create the sides.

Next, make each of your eggs by rolling the white wool roving.  Begin to needle felt (stab or strike) the fibers in place.  When finished, place your eggs in the nest.

Quick and simple - yet sweet!
