This is such a fun project as you get to try your hand at both wet felting and needle felting.

It is suitable for older children and adults. It is also suitable for beginners.

A Tomte is a Scandinavian gnome traditionally associated with the Winter Solstice. He is said to keep watch over your home, family and animals to protect them from harm.

The hat will be made using a wet felting technique. You won't be felting around a resist, instead, you'll learn one of the oldest ways of felting ... just using your hands to form the shape. I love the organic shape this technique produces.

The body will be created using needle felting. And you get to give your wee gnome his very own character with some fab wool curls to create his beard. Will he have a neat beard, like the gnome in the picture? Or will you give him a crazy long and luscious beard?

This project box will contain the following:
wool
netting & bubble wrap for wet felting
felting sponge
2 felting needles

You can also order a box without the felting sponge and felting needles if you already have plenty at home. This will be £15 including P&P. See the options below.

All you need to supply is small bowl, such as a washing up bowl and a dab of washing up liquid to help with the wet felting process.

You will also need towels. It can get wet!

All the instructions for this project will be through highly detailed video tutorials that you can watch as many times as you need. You can also play, pause and rewind.

Login details will be sent via email so do make sure that you add hello@bentonsmenagerie.co.uk to your contacts list so that your email doesn't disappear into your spam folder.
