This is a great beginner's needle felting project. It produces six decorative fall leaves that are based on real leaf types: dogwood, tulip poplar, maple, oak, sweetgum and birch. The perfect addition to your seasonal fall decor. Display them in a centerpiece or on a mantle, or you could add them to a wreath, garland, or seasonal nature table.
Felting time: about 20 min. per leaf depending on individual felting speed.
Kit is beautifully packaged and includes:
Beginner's Guide to Needle Felting (a bit of general information)
Instruction Sheet with pictures of every step
Link to video instructions (highly recommended!)
Paper leaf pattern
Two color-coded felting needles in a handy paper tube

You will also need:
A sharp scissors to cut out the leaves and a mat to use as a work surface. Choose from foam, burlap, or wool. Once you have a mat, it can be used for many projects. Note that foam is the most economical but wears out the fastest.
