Ever since I saw a post about felted balls and got some great ideas on what to do with them, on the very fun blog:
... I´ve been wanting to make my own felted balls.

I asked my very good friends Google and Youtube for advice and found this:
1. Youtube: making feltballs with Rachel Greenland

2. Martha Stewart (btw: you can find just about everything there... I just love this website): "how to felt balls"

I thought this would be a fun project to do with my boys, so I picked them up early from Kindergarten last week, and we got some wool (ullarkemba) together at the wool factory-outlet Álafoss. The two of them (and me too ;-) had so much fun all the way on this felting-journey... picking the colours and the wool, rolling the wool between our hands and dipping them in the soapwater. The whole thing had a very calming effect on the us and we listend to some nice christmasmusic while rolling and squeezing the wool... we love the result... this is such a great way to spend some quality time with your kids!

Something green...

Something red...


My white ones...

  1. Þær eru æðislegar og virkar mjög skemmtilegur prosess. Þessar hvítu finnst mér rosa spes, svo fallegar.

  2. Takk fyrir - þetta var svo sannarlega skemmtilegt. Okkur fannst það öllum - og svo ótrúlega einfalt að gera. Mér finnast þessar hvítu líka með þeim fallegri... langar að gera fleiri og búa til eitthvað fallegt úr þeim...

  3. Well done :) It looks like the three of you had a good time, and the felted balls are lovely. Nice colours!

    I have done this before, many years ago, and I remember it was great fun. I tied strings to the balls and hung them in a pretty twig I found in the wood. It made a nice natural decoration.

    Your post is very inspiring. I'll have too look for some wool in town :)

  4. Rosa sætar hjá ykkur. Takk fyrir að minnast á síðuna okkar ;-) Verður gaman að sjá hvað þú gerir svo með kúlurnar :-)

  5. Thank you so much Hilde! I'm so happy to hear, that I was able to inspire you to felt a bit! :-) I really love this Idea of the felted balls hanging in a twig! I just might have to do that too!

    Merry christmas to you!

  6. Takk fyrir Kristrún Helga! :-) þetta var alveg ótrúlega skemmtilegt verkefni!

  7. Such a neat time with your boys! Creativity is not only a natural thing, it's also taught.

  8. I think you are right Judi... creativity is something you learn too! And my boys really enjoy doing creative things...
