This mounted bunny head needle felting kit contains everything you need to create a super cute pair of mounted rabbit faces on an embroidery hoop.

You’ll create the basic shape of your bunny heads using core wool and will learn to felt their eyes to really bring them to life!

A great DIY class if you’d like to develop your needle felt skills at home - relax into a mindful craft and challenge yourself to make something wonderful.

You'll create your bunny heads alongside your teacher in a pre-recorded video tutorial. This step by step tutorial is broken down into manageable sections to take you through the entire making process, allowing you to work on your rabbit friends in stages and easily pick up where you left off.

Your tutorial segments include:

  • Building up the core shape of the rabbit heads.
  • ️How to make a realistic-looking mouth and avoid common errors in making the rabbits’ lips.
  • Making felted eyes.
  • How to make an eye socket for realistic looking eyes.
  • ️ A neat way for adding tidy looking patterns for the fur.
  • How to make realistically shaped ears (and learn a little secret on how to fix them to the head!).
  • How to prepare your embroidery hoop and mount your bunny head

Upon completion of your bunny project, you’ll have made a beautifully mounted piece of needlework to display proudly at home. You’ll have also learned some solid needle felting skills which you can use for future projects.

This class helps you to appreciate the value of making a solid core for future 3D projects - useful if you’d like to create more creatures of your own.

You should allow around six hours in total to make your bunny heads. Your video is around four hours. The step by step style of your video tutorial enables you to easily pick up from where you left off if you'd prefer to spend a few days making your bunny friends, rather than making them all in one go.

Your gorgeous bunnies aren't suitable to be used as toys and you should keep them away from pets if you have any. Mounted on your embroidery hoop, your rabbits will look wonderful displayed in your home!

You can add these when you book (optional).

Hello, I'm Elaine and I absolutely love sharing my needle felting skills with others to help them achieve results they can be proud of. There is nothing more satisfying than seeing a complete beginner or an experienced felter learn something new and create beautiful pieces of art.

Using an easy to follow teaching format, I strive to incorporate different techniques and skills in the classes I provide to really stretch your abilities, boost your confidence and help you have fun felting!

I've always been creative, and for me, it's a way to relax and unwind and explore the world around me. I'm particularly drawn to making animals, and have quite a few different pets at home for inspiration!

I hold a BA (Hons) in multi-media textiles and taught art and craft sessions in a day centre setting. Since having three children, I've pursued my own arty venture with my newfound skills of patience, being able to explain things clearly and embracing a limitless imagination.
