So I ordered the felt balls from www.hellomaypole.bigcartel.com and got started!
What you will need…
Branch (I snagged a branch from our fig tree in the yard.)
Needle and Thread
Yes, that is it!
First I spread out the balls and assorted them the way I wanted.
After you have your desired look, just thread your string through the balls. This is pretty easy, just string one end with a needle and tie a knot on the other end. You might have to do a few knots so the balls don’t slip through. I was going to glue the bottom so the balls didn’t fall off, but I didn’t end up needing to. Tie the other end of the string to the branch. I will replace the thread on top with clear fishing line eventually, just didn’t have any on hand.
I love how it turned out and can’t wait to put it up in his room!
