Douglas Fern Project - Needle Felting Project (please read description)
This is a great (albeit long) project lol and I recommend doing it as one of those "a bit each week" type of things :)
The finished Project stands at around 35cm tall :)
Made using The Fern template the Douglas Fern is fantastic as a Christmas / Festive decoration or as part of a woodland scene.
Specifically designed so that once completed it can be flat packed(ish), stored away in a box with minimal effort and bought out when desired.

There are two videos for this project
One to create the fern and the other which is the assembly specific to this project.
**PLEASE READ** ... when making the ferns it is a LOT quicker to make the fern without the wire .. then put the wire on the top of the completed fern using the wiring hole.. dot some glue .. leave it to dry completely ... Then cover the wire with a bit of wool. When you put the bend in the wire for assembly make sure the wire is on the Underside. I have found this makes fern creation go quite a bit quicker :)
