The Grey Woods DIY Needle Felting Kits

Posted on September 8, 2017 by

While browsing for some more needle felting kits that I definitely don’t need, I came across a charming Etsy shop called The Grey Woods. It specializes in original tiny needle felting kits that include both instructions and all the supplies that you need for the project, which is ideal if you’re new to needle felt and would like to try it out. Here are a few of my favorite picks!

The Grey Woods sea otter needle felting kits

The sea otter kit is beyond adorable, and somewhat unnecessarily feeds my current otter obsession. It’s obviously impossible to own a real one, so this is the next best thing.

The Grey Woods penguin needle felting kits

I could say I’m obsessed with penguins, too, and that would be accurate…but at this point I think it’s more honest to say that I’m just obsessed with animals in general. Their penguin holding a heart would make a sweet gift to someone.

The Grey Woods owls needle felting kits

Who wouldn’t want an owl family? It even comes with the adorable little nest to tuck them all into! Since the babies are so tiny, this might a good fit if you’re looking for a bit of a challenge.

The Grey Woods fox needle felting kits

The sleeping fox is of course really cute. It would make a good choice if you’re looking for a new project to keep you busy while you anxiously wait for autumn to arrive. It’s not very far now!

The Grey Woods sheep needle felting kits

While I’m very tempted over the sea otter, their sheep kit is absolutely precious as well. It’s a bit out of the question for me to realize my dream of owning a real sheep (for now), but I don’t mind settling for something this cute. I’m not sure why, but the little bell collar just gets me!

They have other kits to browse, so be sure to check out the rest of the Etsy shop, and do tell us what your favorite kit is from the shop. Everything is so cute, it might make hard to choose!
