Needle Felted wool Pumpkin Tutorial

 Autumn in New Zealand  
  What fun to make a wool pumpkin to sit on your kitchen table

You will need some carded wool, a needle felting needle and a foam pad
Wrap about 12 inches of wool around your fingers to form a ball
 Needle felt it firmly, shape it into an oval as you go

Now make 5 lines, radiating out from the center, poke the needle in firmly to create creases

Take about 5 inches of green wool, and fold in half, needle felt half of it, firmly on the foam pad

Spread the green out from the bottom into 5 pieces ( like an octopus's tentacles ) and place on top of pumpkin and needle felt in

And there you have it, your very own Harvest pumpkin
