DIY Easter decorations


These little birds look lovely and are quick and easy to make. It’s basically a case of blanket-stitching around the edge of felt bird shapes with a contrasting coloured thread. I used some pre-cut felt birds but you could always use up some scraps of felt and draw a simple bird-shape out of card to use as a template. You’ll need embroidery thread, an embroidery needle or an ordinary needle with a large eye (hole to put the thread through), scissors and felt shapes.

    Hi Katrine, this looks lovely. Instead of buying ready made birds, I use cookie cutters and roving wool and create a felt figure by needle felting it. For some reason I find needle felting very satisfying haha 😉

      Hi Michele, Thanks very much for this feedback. I shall have a look in my kitchen cupboard for some cookie cutters and give it a go! Needle felting isn’t just satisfying, it’s addictive! lol 🙂

    Must be the stabbing part that’s so addictive, lol 😬 It works great as a tension releasing exercise 👍

    I decorated a (wet) felted bag with some needle felted ornaments and my next project is going to be another bag
