DIY Felt Ball Crafts

I love felt balls, so versatile I have seen them used in so many projects, from felt trees to placemats even latter art for the walls (another of my favourites). Well this project takes the balls to a different level, to the ceiling that is, with the creation of this felt ball mobile.

Finally I got to make something out the felt balls I bought a couple weeks ago. Read more to find out how I did it:

Supplies needed:

2 sticks of driftwood, approximately 25 cm / 9.8 in long

25 felt balls, you can make your own, but I didn’t have the time for that on this occasion, it certainly is easier to buy them

How to make your felt ball mobile:

1. Start with the felt balls because that what’s gonna take most of your time. Tie a knot at the end of the thread and pull the needle through all five balls. Repeat this five times.

2. Screw the hook screw through both sticks.

3. Attach the hanging balls to the sticks using doble knots. That’s about it not that hard was it?? Now find a place to hang it!

I personally think a felt ball mobile is the perfect splash of colour for a nursery or kids room. It add that touch of fantasy that every child naturally has. I would put it in the same category as homemade clouds and hot air balloons.

Look how pretty the finish product turned out to be. If you liked this DIY be sure to pin it for later so you can create your very own felt ball mobile
