4 Fun Uses for Felted Balls

My DIY felted wool ball billy buttons are so fun and easy to make that you might find yourself churning them out by the dozens.  Unless you're decorating a wedding hall, you only need to many faux billy button arrangements so I thought I would round up some beautiful ways to decorate with billy buttons and felted wool balls.

Although this is a real Billy Button, I love the idea of tucking a felted one into a napkin:

If you feel like felting a million more felted wool balls, this wreath (made of felted balls) would be such a stunning project to make.

I'm flagging this idea for fall.  I think a dab of a strong glue is all you need to affix a few felted balls to a pair of plain canvas ballet flats.

For a kid's birthday party - heck, for anyone's birthday party - a string of casual garland made of felted wool balls would be fabulous.  Just thread felted balls onto some heavy-duty string using a large needle and knot after each ball (or cluster of balls).

  3. That wreath is amazing, isn't it? I am told you can buy pre-made felted balls for a project that requires a zillion.
