Wee Find: Felt Ball Christmas Wreaths
I can’t stop looking at these wreaths. Aren’t they the best thing since… felt ball rugs? There is something about the look of tiny multi-coloured felt balls that is somehow comforting and alluring and nostalgic – all at once. Is it because they look like hundreds and thousands? And they recall memories of yummy, pretty, sticky fairy bread, chocolate freckles, confetti, and children’s birthday parties? Probably.
Whatever the reason, I’ve added felt ball wreaths to my list of “It Decorations” for Christmas 2014. (Move over It Bags, it’s all about “It Decorations” here at Wee Birdy.)
Down That Little Lane stocks a line-up of serious wreath eye-candy by Little Puddles, with a choice of 20 different colour ways. You can find the perfect wreath to match your exact interiors colour palette or Christmas decor.
I love the traditional colours in the “Christmas” wreath, but I’m also drawn to the vivid “rainbow” wreath; and I can see the very pretty “Christmas pastels” wreath working beautifully in a little girl’s room.
Little Puddles creates the wreaths by hand, using hundred of individual feltballs in an glorious mix of colours. The wreaths are created by gluing each felt ball to a foam wreath and adding a deer as a final embellishment. The back of the wreath is flat and doesn’t include a hook, so you can lean it on a shelf or add your own hook.
If you fancy getting crafty for Christmas, Little Puddles has also created a handy DIY wreath and garland kit, which has everything you need to make your own feltball wreath. So there’s no faffing about in craft shops trying to work out what you need – and there is a clear set of instructions.
Tell me: do you love feltballs? And do you go for traditional Christmas colours or the candy-coloured brights and pastels?
