Wonderful x-mas wreath

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.
Seethrough thread
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!

That actually looks do-able! Off to find some felt balls :) I wonder if I could use baby pompoms and um, a hot glue gun :)

Yay! I'm glad I'm not the only one who immediately thought "glue gun"!!! :)

This is so gorgeous! Where do you find little felted balls like that? I think I would be tempted to leave it out all the time too!

HOW WONDERFUL!!!!! I want to make one..NOW...have to wait until I get at work now!

I wish I could buy this! It's tough to find felted balls in the right colors, like the ones used in the pictured wreath. Anyone willing to sell me a pre-made Feltball Wreath? :-)

Great idea--thanks.

Oh I am in love with this, I just HAVE to make one! And, I think you should definitely leave it out all year -- too pretty to hide away!
