Wool roving is a very versatile medium that gives great results with little effort. It can be dry needle felted or wet felted, which is lots of fun for children.
This is a great craft for little ones to participate in. Just take a few tufts of wool in a few colors and twist up into a pipe cleaner. Directions for this craft can be found in the spring edition of Living Crafts magazine. Hanging from a branch above a table or in the corner of a bedroom are beautiful places to display. When you're ready for a change you can put the wool out for the birds and they will use it to build a nest. We change our branches seasonally- bees in summer, leaves and acorns in fall, snowflakes in winter, blown eggs in early spring and butterflies is what we did this year. This picture is made by taking small pieces of roving and sticking it to a piece of felt background. The heavier pieces can be attached by needle felting into place.
