This project is making felted ornaments! The skill focus is needle felting. This is the booklet that came in our box.

Here’s a peek inside the booklet at the instructions. They were clear and well illustrated, so they were easy for my son to follow. The booklet also always contains good tips and suggestions for practicing.

These are all the supplies that were included for this month’s project. Everything we needed was included except scissors.

The first step was setting up the felt over the felting block and then placing the star-shaped cookie cutter on it. The cookie cutter was kind of hard to keep in place.

Then my son started felting away! He decided to make the snowman ornament first. He had to place some white “fluff” – I think it’s called roving – into the bottom half of the star shape and then secure it by stabbing it with the felting needles about a million times!

Here he is in action! He’s a felting madman! (Excuse the noise, we were at a pizza place.)

He then had to fill the top of the star shape with black roving and continue the process to make the snowman’s hat.

Then he had to tear off tiny pieces of roving and try to shape them into pieces for the nose, eyes, and mouth, then felt them onto the ornament.

When he was done felting, he cut out a star-shaped border around the snowman’s face in the felt.

His last step was to glue a ribbon on the back of the ornament so it can be hung.

These is his completed snowman ornament! I think it turned out really cute!

The Verdict: Doodle Crate is SO awesome, and we love their holiday crates! This project was a really different skill than anything else he has done before, but once he got the hang of it, I think he really liked it. Plus his snowman turned out just adorable! I still can’t believe what Doodle Crate can provide for $20. When you consider the materials, the curation, the project selection, and instructions, that’s really a bargain! Most importantly, it always sets the stage for some fun times crafting with my son. Happy Holidays!
