Item details

I'm thrilled to be offering my needle felted Nativity scene in KIT form. This scene holds a special place in my heart, and I know from Nativity workshops I have run in the past that creating your own scene will take you a beautiful journey. Perfect for an Advent table, story telling and decoration. It is not intended as a toy.

This kit is designed to suit the beginner and experienced felter. My kits are tested by complete beginners and provide encouragement right the way through.

This kit contains over 250 step-by-step photos giving you video-like guidance to sculpting a basic standing figure with wool. Once you have made Mary, you will have the know how to create your own Mother Earth and to create needle felted clothing.



Each craft kit contains:

* A beautifully presented colour photo step-by-step instruction booklet
* Divine materials incl special hair fibres to make two adult figures standing 14cm / 5.5 inches, baby Jesus and a crib
* Cotton covered wire
* 2 specialised felting needles
* presented in a beautiful 100% recycled box and booklet is printed on 100% recycled and unbleached paper

Not included:

* foam block to protect your needle and your lap :)
* scissors



It suits the beginner or master crafter. Over half the people who trial my kits are beginners so you can feel confident that they are easy to follow.

I have designed them to suit someone who has literally never held a felting needle before, whilst also providing those with more experience with some extra tips and tricks along the way. The booklet gives you so much more than just the basic instruction:

* Glossary demystifying many felting terms and fibres
* Guide to good needling technique
* Explanation of the different fibres plus
* Heaps of transferable techniques, and
* A whole section on creating magical Advent table scenes with meaningful verses and stories.

It's a delightful gift for someone who has had a yearning to be creative but doesn't necessarily want to invest in buying all the materials needed to make something like this.

CHILDREN must be supervised due to the super sharp barbed needle. Parents/carers - please use your own judgement as to whether or not your child is old enough to do this project. As a guide, over 9s seem to have the focus to needle felt. Personally I love to encourage younger children to enjoy the tactile nature of wet felting. They can then grow into Needle Felting when the time is right.



“I adore my peaceful Advent scene. You made every step so simple to follow - even for a first-time felter! I feel so proud of myself and will cherish this for years! Deep Gratitude!!” Heidi

    I was impressed with the Nativity Kit when I saw it on Etsy. I was impressed once again when I received it earlier than expected. AND I was even more impressed when I read the warm welcome in the accompanying turtorial. It seems ZuzuAndMe puts as much heart into her words as she puts into her projects. She certainly warmed my heart and I am looking forward to putting my love into each step of the Nativity!
