Put your needle felted, soft seagull on a pretty painted rock and add shells collected from your vacation. Felted pieces look beautiful when they are displayed well and have added textures behind them.
Needle Felted Seagull
Materials: White wool, small bits of gray, black and yellow wool and a bead or seed for an eye.
A smooth rock, blue and white paint and some shells and sand. White or hot glue.
To make the wing, shape and oval and felt down into a wing shape. Add some gray and black to shade.
The body is about twice as thick as a pencil, elongated and tapered at each end.
Add a tail in a triangle shape.
Add the wing (he only needs one) and felt down firmly.
Paint your rock and then use white glue to anchor the sand and tiny shells.
I used hot glue to glue the seagull onto the rock. Glue in the eye and add the beak.
I put a very strong magnet on the back of this rock to make it a magnet for the refrigerator.
This makes a great vacation keepsake!
