needle felted wool pumpkins

Craft a Whole Patch!

Emily and I crafted two different versions of these mini felted pumpkins. She used our felt balls, thread, and felt to make a simple version, while I made something a bit more complicated by adding roving wool and a clay stem. The small and simple version would be a great craft for kids to make while you use your needle-felting tools to shape a larger pumpkin.

Though we used foam balls for our original set of felted mini pumpkins, we have moved toward more sustainable materials in the last few years. Our original set also feature cooler tones while our new set has more warm, earthy tones. Both color palettes are perfect for fall and of course you can always use whatever colors of roving wool you like best!
