fluffy frosties

On the eighth day at the Clay House my true love gave to me, 8 fluffy Frosties, 7 folded flurries, 6 wooly wreaths, 5 button baubles! 4 nordic stars, 3 sparkling snowflakes, 2 festive flowers and a sleepy sloth for my holiday tree.

Felting occurs when wool fibers are agitated together with a special felting needle. This is a very easy entry level felting project that can be customized to give your frosty the snowman their own personality.

We’ve put together an optional kit for the class with all the materials and tools you will need. You can find it in our online shop here. Students will also receive an email with a full list of supplies.
