Felt Ball Trees
I have a slight addiction to felt balls. I love just seeing them displayed in the numerous jars I have around the house. My husband finally asked if I was ever going to do anything with them, so I started making garlands. Well, there are only so many felt ball garlands we can have around the house, so it was time to try something new.
I dug through my stash of craft supplies and pulled out styrofoam balls, dowels, wooden spools, and a glue gun.
I stuck the dowel in the styrofoam ball and started gluing the felt balls to it. I did this until the entire styrofoam ball was covered.
To finish it off, I added some wash tape to the wooden spool.
This is such a fun craft, and the two felt ball trees I made totally remind me of winter and spring. I'm imagining a whole series of themed felt ball trees now. How awesome would a forest of spring or fall trees be?!

Kimm at Reinvented and RoadKill Rescue on Feb 17, 2015Oh my goodness, those are adorable! Would be great for all holidays and for parties with coordinating colors!
I am considering doing this project for a class I am teaching at the public library where I work. Can you tell me the size of the styrofoam ball and spool that you used?
