A DIY Staple: Felt Balls

felt balls 02

I am sure you have all seen the colorful little felt balls all over the internet these days. They are the perfect DIY staple! Not only are they fun and cheery, but they are super versatile as well. I have seen them used to make wreaths, ornaments and more. I used to think that if I wanted some felt balls I would have to make them myself. Which was a huge turn off! I have tried to make my own and my hands ended up scratchy and red and it took forever to make just one. Also, I am no expert felt ball maker, so the balls ended up looking a little more like eggs. It was awful. Then I discovered Hello Maypole!

Hello Maypole is a fun little shop that sells the beautiful felt balls so you don’t have to make them. They have different color combos that come in a set of 50 balls that are just waiting to be made into something fantastic for your home. Hello Maypole comes out with different color combos every so often that coordinate perfectly with the season and all of the fun and colorful holidays that come with it! Right now they have valentine’s day, birthday and easter in the shop and I want all three! In case you are having a lack of ideas of what you could make with these pretty little guys, here are a few ideas.

This slingshot uses the felt balls as ammo! You don’t even have to use the balls to make anything! The kids will love the colorful balls of ammo and mom and dad will love how soft they are for shooting. You can see the full details for this DIY over on And We Play.

Hello Maypole even gives you some clever ideas of their own as to how to put these balls to good use. This easter gift is wrapped up so festively with a felt ball topper. Just string some twine through each ball and wrap your gift! It’s so easy to do but makes such a fun difference on the package, don’t you think? I love the easter colors. All of the pastels are making me excited for spring to come!

They also have the clever idea to use the balls as confetti. I mean, what could be more fun at a kids birthday party than some of these adorable felt balls all over the party? You can buy this set of balls right here on Hello Maypole.

So what would you make with some felt balls of your very own? I think I would make a garland to start. But that would just be the beginning!
