This is merino wool, which I wet felted into a flat piece of felt.  I then needle felted Corriedale wool on top for the tree design, and added buttons.  I used about 280 g of white merino for the background.

I love it, its got a great texture


The final measurements are 18" wide and 21.5" tall.





Close ups .....


 Each leaf was individually needle felted, then attached.

Very different feel for a button tree. I love it! I hope to get this good with felting someday. You give me something to strive for.
