Needle Felted Robin

Here in Europe, some robins do not fly south for the winter and can be seen instead at the feeding stations collecting food to help them through the season. In England, the gentle robin is also the typical bird motif found on Christmas cards. This project lets you create an adorable robin out of a styrofoam bird shape and wool to use for your Christmas decorating or as a ornament on your Christmas tree.

For the robin, start at any area you wish and apply the appropriate colored wool. Needle felt the wool into place and then word at the next area with the next color. Make sure to needle felt the seams flat between color changes. For the eyes, first a small piece of black wool was placed in an eye shape onto the face. Once needle felted into place, a tiny piece of white was felted into the eye area. Once the bird was finished, thin strands of dark wool was needle felted to the wing areas to highlight them.
