Love making cute creatures? We’ve got a new one for you! This needle felted fox is the newest member on our shelf of animal friends. If you’re new to needle felting, this needle felting for beginners video might help. We promise it’s easier than you might think. All you need are a few tools and materials (listed below). Then, just follow our instructions to make your own needle felted fox.
Crafty as a Fox
Needle felting is a fun and simple way to create your own stuffed animals. You can use them as home decor, send them as gifts, or create a whole collection for your kids to play with. If you want to add to your own collection, we’ve got other ideas for you! What about these cute panda pals? Or pigs? This raven would also be a perfect addition to your Halloween decor.
We used a foam egg for the body of our needle felted fox to save on materials and make the crafting process easier. This also allows you to felt animals faster. You’ll want to poke at the wool roving repeatedly until it becomes smooth. This part may take a little bit of time (maybe 15–30 minutes), but we actually find this process very relaxing!

[…] is a great little beginner project, Lia Griffith creates this little guy over a styrofoam egg but you can just as easily make it entirely of […]
Lia, I think it is a wonderful idea to use a base made of another material for needle felting. I wondered though, are you using styrofoam egg or foam rubber for the Needle Felted Fox??
Hi Terri! We used a foam egg – check the link in the post of the exact one.
