Felt Ball Mobile


I had visions of this mobile dancing above Ollie's crib when he wasn't yet born, and well into his second year, I finally got it made. 


Making it was fairly simple. I just gathered some fallen branches from our backyard, soaked them in bleach, and let them dry.


Then, I cut them to the sizes I wanted, and laid them out in a general mobile shape.
 

I used embroidery floss to sting the felted wool balls, and tied them to the branches, using triple knots and securing them with glue so it's nice and strong.


And then I hung it with a piece of leather cord, and let my little guy enjoy it. Finally.

  4. This is fantastic and I love all the colours. I wanted to make felt ball garland for our xmas tree this year but didn't get a chance. Seeing these strung up in a mobile is so fun, makes me smile too.

  6. How did you hang it from the ceiling? About how long is the leather cord from ceiling to mobile?
