Step 3

Felt the roving by repeatedly pricking the fibers all over with the needle tool until it starts to bind together and become matted; continue felting until the heart form becomes firm and shrinks.

Step 5

Once the hearts are completely felted, assemble your garland: Thread your embroidery needle with twine and stitch through the top of each heart. Fold the ends of the twine over and tie to create a loop on each side of the garland for hanging.
