Use these felted balls as ornaments on a tree or string them together to make a garland. They also make wonderful cat toys.
Feltable wool scraps, Styrofoam balls (1-3″ diameter… smaller balls are easier), old panty-hose, rubber bands, rubber gloves, pot, stove, dish soap, bowl, and slotted spoon.
Throw them in a pot of gently boiling sudsy water. Allow to boil for about 30 minutes, occasionally stirring and knocking balls about with a spoon.
Remove from water with slotted spoon. Remove rubber bands and gently remove panty-hose covering (it may stick to wool).
When you are satisfied with your felting, rinse with cool water and allow to dry.
Use floral wire or thread to hang.
