Intro: Felted Wool Balls Braclet
This braclet is relaxing and great for a lazy day around the house. Have fun with colors patterns and designs!
Step 1: Supplies
You will need: • a few different colors of wool roving
• a towel
• a bowl of hot & soapy water
Step 2: Making It Wispy
Spread out your first roving color so that it is very wispy and thin but still connected.
Step 3: A Rough Ball
Form the roving into a rough and wispy ball. Do not squeeze though!
Step 4: A Bit of Water
Splash a little of water onto the ball... lightly though.
Step 5: Start Rolling
Start rolling the ball between your hands VERY GENTLY while adding a little bit of water every so often and little squirts of soap in your palm (not to much though) until it starts to condense and get a little bit harder.
Step 6: Like This
Keep rolling until its about this size and fairly tough.
Step 7: Repeat That Process
Keep doing this until you have 6-7 balls.
Step 8: Wash and Dry
Wash the soap out of the felt balls and set out to dry.
Step 9: For the Bracelet
You can make another project with your felted balls of make them into this bracelet.
For the bracelet you will need: • your felted balls
• a needle
•a string of elastic that fits around your wrist plus an inch or two
• spacer beads (buttons look cool too!)
Step 10: Making the Bracelet
Thread your needle and tie a knot at the other end. Then, stick it through the ball and pull it tight. Put your spacer bead/button on next.
Step 11: Continue and Tie
Repeat this process until you reach the desired length or run out of beads. Then... tie the two ends together and you're DONE!
