Wool preparation First, take the wool and form a cone forIn order to work on felting technique. It is very important that there are no wrinkles, creases, and twisting of the elements of work. A denser base allows faster and easier movements to roll in the future. But at the same time, the foundation should not be very soft. Therefore, it is better to make efforts to roll the wool than it will be lower, the more it should be added. With the help of fingers, we need to straighten the edges of woolen strips. The Christmas tree should leave magnificent and small. During felting, it will decrease. Next, we tear off pieces of wool, keep hands near the craft, and press the strip with your fingers, using a transverse adjustment for the surface. Do this not close to the place where there was a gap. Then, we cover the Christmas tree with stripes in a wideform. We use the squares of the wool, overlapping each other, in order to hide the shortcomings of folds and unevennesses. Thus, the herringbone will be more smooth. The edges need to be smooth, and you do not need to cut the wool. Further, using a sponge and our cone, we produce felting to the state of a solid mass. On the needle there are crampons, which allow to confuse the fibers of the wool, so there is felting. Do not forget about the rotation of the tree, so it was littered on all sides. The density of the figure should be the same, you need to poke in different places. Wet felting Further, the fir tree descends into the basin with water(heated). How to blot it. Then squeeze. Afterwards, wet hands should have a liquid soap, or a detergent that you distribute along each palm. We rub the Christmas tree. Initially, we do this easily. Then, rotate the product. Also, add soap. For the organization of a flat and stable bottom in the part of the tree, it must be placed on a hard surface, and roll with movements from the front to the back, making scrolls with the palms. Do not forget to turn the Christmas tree, otherwise the sides will go out crookedly. Hand as far as possible, do not forget to soak, also, you need to add soap. The wool will thicken, it takes more strength. Balls and decorate Next, using the coat of anothercolor, shape the balls. After we pile them down, they will become smaller. A more tightly rolled ball will look better. Using the felting needle, we attach the necessary round shape. Balls should also have a dense appearance and do not lose their shape when pressed. It is desirable that they are of different sizes. It will be great to look, if a particle of balls on the Christmas tree will hang in one color, and another - in multi-colored balls. We use a thread to sew our balls to the Christmas tree. The ball must be pierced through the entire base, and the bundle should be hidden in the lower part and sewn to the Christmas tree.
