Cover your white earbuds with colorful needle-felted flowers. (This project was designed and carried out by my eight-year-old daughter. I am merely her photographer and secretary.)
Step 1: Materials
This project can be done after one visit to a good yarn store - the kind of store that supplies spinners as well as knitters. You can also find materials online, but then you have to wait for them to come in the mail.
You will need:
Wool fleece. You won't need much for this project, so if you can find a sampler pack with multiple colors, that's great. Otherwise, you'll just have plenty of material to make other felting projects...
One or two felting needles. These are SHARP. And brittle. (You may want a back-up needle.) Proceed with caution. Have band-aids just in case. We had no injuries this time, but I've jabbed myself in the past when I've gotten distracted.
A kitchen sponge with small holes in it, or a piece of foam scrounged from packing material.
Spare earbuds. We borrowed my husband's extra set, since he was at work...
