You will need:
barbed felting needle
orange or white wool roving for pumpkin
green or brown wool roving for stem
1) Take some orange roving and roll it up like a jelly roll.
6) Thread a sewing needle with orange thread. Insert it into the center of the pumpkin from top to bottom.
|See how it makes a ridged look.|
9)Take a small amount of green roving for the stem. Roll it like a jelly roll and felt the top and sides while leaving the bottom of the stem unfelted.
10) Place stem on the center of the pumpkin. Attach the stem by felting the bottom of the stem (the part that was left unfelted) to the pumpkin. Felt until it seems securely connected.
|I forgot to get a picture of the stem till is was almost attached to the pumpkin but, you can kind of see the unfelted part here.|
Tah-Dah! A beautiful felted pumpkin!
