We’re decorating our tree this weekend. I saw these pictures and wished I had the felt ball garland I made last year. Go here for more details.

What happened to them? Did the felt balls fall apart? That would be too bad because they look so cute!
I didn’t bring them to France with me. I miss it!
I made one, inspired by your post last year! I ordered the “poppy mix” colors and have gotten so many compliments on my tree!
Can I just say that this garland makes me “Oh so happy” What a fun project and your blog is just a joy to read!
Ahk!! So cute! I have a bunch of little fuzzy balls like that, (not felt so they lose a bit of the chic quality) but I will make sure we are stringing them up on our tree. Gosh, how did I not think of that before? I was wondering what I was going to do with them all! hahah.
this is adorable!
this is so cute! i have to ask, though, how long did it take? i just made two 20 foot garlands where we strung paper circles on twine, and it looked adorable but it took forever!!! it was for a trade show, but i love this felt one for my tree! i just have to know if i can budget enough time…
fantastic post…so pretty!

I think I did it in one evening. It didn’t take too much time.
I made one of these with the different size cream colored felt balls after looking at your post from last year! It took about 2 hours to make one long enough for a 5′ tree but it was less than $50 and totally beautiful! Thanks for the idea!!!
Oh my! These are too adorable! I’ve been trying to make my own, but the professionals do it so much better! Did you use the Poppy or the Retro mix? I’m kind of digging the Flora..
Oh it’s so lovely! J’adore
I made a couple of these also–it was the first item on my DIY holiday decorations list. They look beautiful on the tree and strung from my mantel–seems to jive well with our vintage furnishings. Thanks a million, Jordan!

Those little balls actually remind me of a little DIY for how to make felt billy balls! I bet you could do the same thing for these too! Neat!

Are these the same felt balls I’ve noticed you wearing in your hair? I loved the look and was always curious how you did it? Would love to know…
You are probably thinking of the yarn pom poms I wear in my hair sometimes. I bought it at a store with goods from Peru. It might be a bracelet but I always wear it in my hair.

This project reminds me of this fun rug made out of pompoms. http://hayshop.dk/products/13-hay-rugs/9-pinocchio/
