Not long ago I came across a DIY on making yarn caps for a Christmas tree. Perhaps, many of you have seen it, too. I liked the technique and decided to try it. I added some author's techniques and got a charming brooch, which became my bestseller of the season!
Let's get started! You need:
- wool for felting
- needle for felting
- a piece of foam
- brooch base
- half pearl
If you do not have wool and needles for felting — you can do without them, I'll show this :)
Cut a piece of foam 11 x 1.5 cm.
Take glue and carefully join the ends making a circle:
When the glue dries, fix the ends with the stapler:
Now take fluffy yarn. Cut lots of threads of 20-25 cm.
I selected a wonderful lavender colour!
Take one thread, make a loop, pass it through the base and fix with a knot:
Tighten well and fix other threads:
Make a knot at the top:
Cut off all excess threads:
The brooch is almost ready! Tear off a small ball of fur and slightly felt it.
Then felt it inside the brooch, apply the right shape to the cap.
Shape the pompom properly.
And add some wool:
Fluff it a little bit:
Now cut off the excess wool and gently shape the ball:
You can decorate the cap with embroidery or beads.
You come to the final step :) Glue or sew the brooch base:
The cute brooch is ready! Feel free to pin it on a sweater, coat, scarf, bag. Or present it :)
I hope my DIY was useful and interesting for you :) Like it. I appreciate your comments and photos of the work!
