Felted garland

Today's project is one for the nursery again. A garland made from little felt balls. For this project you need a felting needle, some red and white wool for felting, a nice ribbon and white and red cotton.
Take the white wool and form little balls. Use the felting needle to condense and shape the wool balls. They should be quite dense in the end. I have also made a fly agaric by using some red wool on top of one of the white balls.
Usually I put my prefelted objects in the washing machine at 40 degrees in order to make them denser and more durable. Afterwards you can embroider the balls and add crocheted ribbons so you can hang them from the garland.
