An angel needle-felted onto polystyrene
Make this angel by needle felting carded wool onto a polystyrene egg. The angel is then decorated with rocaille seed beads and a piece of cotton yarn is attached for hanging.
How to do it
Cut off the top of the polystyrene egg.
Tear a small tuft of carded wool and felt it onto the polystyrene egg until it is covered using the felting needle.
Glue on a wooden head and cotton yarn or other thin yarn for the hair.
Gather the hair (in bunches) at the end and tie on bows.
Cut out the angel's hat from the template which is available as a separate PDF file on this page. Needle felt a flat piece from carded wool the roughly same size as the hat from the template. Place the template on top of the needle-felted carded wool and felt along the edge with the felting needle. Fold the loose carded felt over and felt it on.
Fold the hat and felt it together.
Sew rocaille seed beads onto the angel's body.
Glue two pieces of felt together using a glue gun. Cut out the wings from the template and place it on top of the felt. Cut out the wings from felt.
Sew rocaille seed beads onto the hat and the wings.
Glue the head and the wings onto the angel.
Sew a piece of cotton yarn for hanging through the hat.
