King Winter Arrives at our Nature Table

King Winter
Even though the frenzy of the holidays have come and gone, we continue celebrating the seasons with a seasonal nature table.  For several years I've meant to make "King Winter" and this winter I finally got around to it (that feels good!).  I used the instructions in The Nature Corner by Leeuwen & Moeskops for guidance.  My process:
  1. I began with a wood and wire bendy doll form
  2. Needle felted around the body to give him some shape and soften him up a bit
  3. Glued on curly wool for his beard, mustache & hair
  4. Drew on eyes & mouth
  5. Sewed robe from blue velour & cloak from white silk (a scrap from my wedding dress)
  6. Attached clothing
  7. Made a scepter from a skewer & aluminum foil
  8. Cut out a crown from glittery card stock
wood and wire bendy doll form

With needle felted wool body and curly woolen beard & hair
