Two red-nosed pixies made from carded wool which is felted onto a polystyrene ball. Each has a felted pixie hat on their head. The eyes are shaped from Silk Clay and attached with a nail. The pixies are then placed in individual terracotta pots.

Guide step 1
1.
Print and cut out the template for the pixie hat which is available as a separate pdf file for this idea. Spread a piece of carded wool – slightly larger than the hat template – onto the needle felting foam pad. Needle felt the actual outline of the hat template with a felting needle.
Guide step 2
2.
Felt the wool tightly by pushing the felting needle up and down repeatedly. NB: Lift the wool away from the needle felting foam pad every now and again to avoid the wool being needle felted onto the pad.
Guide step 3
3.
Decorate the needle felted hat with dots/stripes which are felted onto the hat using the same procedure as the one used for the hat.
Guide step 4
4.
Make a tight fold at the edge of the hat as shown. This is where the pixie's face will be once the hat is assembled and finished.
Guide step 5
5.
Assemble the hat and felt the sides together. Use your fingers to work/part the wool fibres on the inside of the hat so that the hat remains hollow.
