Needle-Felted Hearts



If you've ever wanted to try needle-felting, these cookie-cutter hearts are the perfect project for a beginning felter. They are very simple to make and do not require a lot of wool or many tools.




All you need is some wool roving, a felting needle and a heart-shaped cookie cutter {use a sponge or foam block underneath your work so you don't end up poking yourself or breaking the needle}



Once you start making these, you'll quickly have a handful. You can create a pretty Valentine's Day garland by stringing a few together with baker's twine, make hanging ornaments for your Valentine Tree, turn them into hair clips, brooches or magnets or use them to add a pretty touch to a gift package.

Enjoy!
