How to Make a Needle Felted Cupcake

by Crafty McCrafterson

I quick how-to on how to make a cute felted cupcake.


  • Wool Roving (your choice of colors)
  • Felting needle
  • Seed beads
  • Beading needle
  • Thread
  • Square piece of foam for felting
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Take your roving and form a base. You can use the roving as the base or a small styrofoam ball. Use your needle to poke the wool and soon you'll find it starting to become solid enough to sculpt.

    Step 2

    The brown roving is a layer of chocolate, but you can make it whatever flavor you like.

    Step 3

    Now it's time to make the main part of the cupcake. Again, you might want to use a base for this such as a styrofoam ball. Add more roving and poke and sculpt with your needle.

    Step 4

    Start attaching your cupcake to the bottom by using your felting needle. By poking the roving the fibers will begin to catch and attach to each other.

    Step 5

    Keep going! The more you poke the roving with your needle the more dense it becomes and the easier it is to sculpt.

    Step 6

    Start sculpting the fluffy icing.

    Step 7

    A pretty cupcake will definitely need a cherry on top!

    Step 8

    Attach the cherry by poking the bottom fibers into the fibers of the pink icing.

    Step 9

    Add some seed beads for the sprinkles. Just take a beading needle and thread and sew them in. You can hide any threads by using your felting needle and a tiny bit of roving to cover up.

    Step 10

    And there you are... A yummy cupcake to display. Try adding a hanging thread to it for a cute Christmas Tree ornament. Enjoy! :)
