Felt Balls are great and with our felt balls in 93 colours you can make your own beautiful garland in colours to suit your space.
I have just added a cute wee Felt Ball Garland Kit to my store which includes a needle, white DMC Thread and an instruction sheet for how to make your own garland. Such a fun project for a new baby, kids room, or birthday party make along.
Garlands are a fun addition to kids rooms or to jazz up your craft space. Totally customisable, make any length, add shapes and glitter felt balls. Hang them over bed heads, shelves and curtain rails or pin them to the wall.
First things first, choose your colours. Check out my Felt Ball Colour Combinations to get some ideas, I have made up a few samples of colours to get you started. There are no rules about how many colours you need so just have fun.
Length will determine how many balls you need, as well as spacing between balls.
+ A 1.2m long garland with a 2-3 cm space between balls will require approximately 24 Felt Balls.
+ A 1.2m long garland with no space between balls will require approximately 50 Felt Balls.
Start by placing your Felt Balls in the order you would like to string them. Have a play around and see which combination you prefer.
Thread your needle, I use our gorgeous DMC stranded thread, available in hundreds of colours to match or contrast your garland. Make sure to sew right through the middle of the ball. There's no need to knot or tie between each one, the balls won't move unless you push them.
Once you've finished stringing your balls, you can decide how far apart to space them. Push them close together or space them about 2-3cm to see what you like the most.
To hang your garland, tie off a loop at each end and pin to your wall with drawing pins or use command hooks. You can also drape your garland across a picture frame, shelf or curtain rail.
Our Felt Balls come in four sizes so you can mix and match not only colours but sizes too.
