I was absolutely thrilled to find Billy Buttons in one of our beautiful florists in New Plymouth this week. I spotted them on IG and fell immediately in love.
I'm sure you can see why, these happy, yellow balls of goodness are a dead ringer for my beloved felt balls.
Of course I had to try and make a Felt Ball version. And what a fun easy project. With only a couple of supplies I've made a cute wee posy for my desk.
All you'll need is a couple of bamboo skewers, our 2cm Felt Balls (I have used 5x 2cm Felt Balls in Yellow) and a length of twine or ribbon.
Super easy, use the pointed end of the skewer and gently twist and push into the felt ball. You can paint or twist ribbon or raffia around the skewer to give a more lux effect. I love the clean bamboo in a glass jar, so I left mine plain.
Even though Billy Buttons only grow yellow, the Felt Ball version have endless colour options, well 93 anyway ;) Check out our great range here.
Have fun with this, I sure did. I'm off to make some more.
