5th Grade- Felted Gnomes

I have a soft spot for gnomes- and for felt.  This year I finally have my hour back with the fifth graders and so there is SO much more that I can do with them!  I love felting, and I love to do needle felting with kids.  The current fifth grade class learned how to make felted birds with me when they were in 3rd grade, so this year we tried gnomes!  They learned how to sculpt with the wool fibers, and how to add little details to their work.  The gnomes were pretty great!  I hope that they are gracing mantels all over town:)
