It will be fun to try this wonderful tutorial on how to make a needle felted owl. The tutorial is so simple to follow that it really doesn't matter if you are only a beginner and have no experience in felting. Just go to Donni's blog The Magic Onions for the entire step by step instructions which are super clear and come with pictures.
Things that you'll need for the project:
Wool roving string
Needle felting needle
And, a protective board
