My Felt Balls Addiction

Okay, I admit it, I have bought felt balls because I like the colors of them… #suchadork


Have you ever seen anything more colorful and fun than a glass jar full of felt balls? I actually use these to add a pop of color in my product photography and have had some ideas about glueing them to a tree base (I wound up buying one at Michaels, but that is okay too!)

Where To Get Felt Balls

I KNOW, you can buy felt pieces at Michaels and then make felt balls (cool video about this below), but I am not that kind of crafty gal, I will go ahead and keep buying felt balls! (contains Etsy affiliate links…:)

Pretty Red & White Garland

When the kids were little, every year we would string popcorn and cranberries on the tree and I loved the warm look of it. Now that they are busy with activities in their free time, I chose to replace the popcorn garland with something permanent that gives that same warmth.
