FELT BALL GARLANDS



I was clearing my son's toy cupboard the other day and I remembered that I had bought some felt ball garlands when Leo was born thinking that I’ll one day have one of those house beds for Leo. I was planning to have it wrapped and draped over the bedframe like below but I decided against the bed (and went with a simple single bed instead).

Obviously, I didn’t want them to go to waste so I've been searching for different uses for them and came across some cute alternatives which are quite easy to do. Since I was looking for ideas, I thought I'd share them with you so you can see how versatile felt balls/garlands can be. It seems many felt ball garlands are used in nursery rooms and kids rooms but I wanted to look for ideas that can be used throughout the home too.
The 2 garlands I got are completely different colour ways so I might use one for Leo's room and the other for somewhere else.

Here are the ideas I found whilst searching...

Room/wall sign: via Nordic in Kent Teepee: via Modern Tipi
Flower objet: via Etsy 3D letters: via Etsy
Cloud wall hanging: via Etsy Paper clips: via Etsy

I’m quite liking the idea of stringing some onto plain baskets and making custom wall banner/signs. I'm feeling a bit crafty so I might put the garlands/felt balls into use soon and will update this post once I've created something...

In the meantime, here are some places you can check out to get your stock of felt balls for some crafting fun! I've looked around Etsy for the best value and most affordable shipping costs (to Mauritius) as some shipping costs were more than the actual items!

This Etsy shop allows you to make your own custom colour felt garlands in various lengths and also has a very affordable shipping cost to Mauritius compared to most of the other sellers.

Ribbon N Kids sell felt balls individually in various quantities and are very reasonably priced compared to other sellers... I'm even tempted to get some for myself for some other possible crafting projects :) 

   
For those looking for other shapes, Rainbow Drops Land have these cute hearts and stars that can be added to the mix of felt balls. 

Just looking at all these colourful rainbow felts make me so happy! 

HAPPY CRAFTING!!
