A needle felting tutorial: “Harvest” a crop of needle felted veggies

Last weekend, I shopped at the farmer’s market. I hauled home green beans, zucchini, cabbage, heirloom tomatoes, and peaches. Everything looks so good, and it’s hard to bring home just enough and not too much. I decided to celebrate the harvest season today and share a fun veggie craft – Needle Felted Vegetables by Debra Quartermain.

Aren’t these beautiful? The cauliflower is simply amazing. Create & Decorate magazine has the instructions, so you can “harvest” your own collection of felted veggies.

Of course, once you’ve had your veggies, it’s time for dessert. Debra also created these Mouthwatering Needle Felted Cupcakes, and the instructions are on StyrofoamCrafts.com.

If you’d rather a “recipe” for a more seasonal cupcake, how about the Needle Felted Halloween Cupcakes by Rebekah Meier? Yummy!

Have fun with these! Rebekah and Debra would both tell you that when you needle felt onto a shape of STYROFOAM™ brand foam, it’s a really fast and easy project.

Do you shop at a farmer’s market? What fresh produce are you enjoying right now? Or, do you grow your own produce?

Happy harvest!
