Felt Ball Mobile

Finally I got to make something out the felt balls I bought a couple weeks ago. I’ve made a felt ball mobile! Read more to find out how I did it 🙂

Supplies: 2 sticks of driftwood, approximately 25 cm / 9.8 in long, 25 felt balls, white tread + a needle and a hook screw long enough to go through both the sticks. You can make your own felt balls, but that takes quite some time. I’ve bought mine at Søstrene Grene. 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. Now there is no need 2. Screw the hook screw through both sticks. 3. Attach the hanging balls to the sticks using doble knots. That’s about it, now find a place to hang it!

I’m thinking of hanging this over my son’s bed, but he is sick at the moment, so therefore I had to shoot photos in the living room instead. The colored balls work great next to the white wall 🙂

    Hello Erlend,

    this looks awesome! Thanks for sharing!!

    I’m making one for my new baby, and was wondering if you did anything to hold the felt balls in place, I’ve seen some tutorials where they tie knots before and after each ball, or use crimp beads. What did you do?
