Welcome your feathered friends with a fabulous wet felted birdhouse! Learn how to layout and shingle dry wool fiber and then how to insert a gourd-shaped resist – the magic that allows you to create dimension from a flat pattern. Then you’ll use wet-felting techniques to transform the wool into prefelt, remove the resist, and finish the felting process. Add a hanger to your birdhouse by making and attaching a felted rope during the wet felting process. And, if time allows (or at home) you can embellish your birdhouse with flat-felt decoration (flowers, faces, windows, your creativity is unlimited here!) and/or stitching.
