Browsing the internet for needle felting I came accross this tutorial.
As I want cacti in my desert, I followed the clear step-by-step tutorial and ended with two felted cilinders.
I didn't know how to attach the smaller one to the bigger one, so I tried something.
And guess what? The "arm" got secured to the "body".
The cactus in the desert. I didn't attach it to the pebble yet, it is too vulnerable.
Here I made a smaller one. A cilinder cut in two pieces.
Cute little cactus.
