This wreath was not free, but it was all worth it. We like it so much, that we´re considering to leave it in the livingroom after x-mas is over;)
What we used
A big wreath of straw.
Loads of felted balls. You can make your own, but it will take some time.
How we did it
Put 5 balls on your thread and lay them over the top of the wreath. Wrap your thread around the wreath and put the needle into the side of the first ball to secure it. Put 5 more balls on your thread and repeat the operation. Make sure that you fill the gaps between the balls, making sure that they´re not in straight rows. See the photo. It sure takes time, but it turns out just perfect!
