To create unusual balls on the tree you will need:
- sheets of felt (white in this case);
- thread (white, silver or gold);
- cardboard, pencil and compasses (or a glass to circle around it).
Step 1.From felt you should cut 8 circles of the same size. To do this, draw a circle on a piece of cardboard, cut out this template and, based on it, make 8 circles on the felt.
Step 2.Take two circles, bend them in half and, with the help of a needle and thread, connect them to each other along the central fold. Make a knot, but do not cut the thread (try to keep the knot “hidden” in the fold between two circles, and not in the fold of one circle).
Step 3.Now sew two more circles without bending them. Sew one on top and the other on the bottom of two sewn parts, stitching through the seam.
Step 4.You need to bend the sewn circles and add two more, stitching them through the seam (still do not cut the thread).
Step 5.With the remaining circles do the same operation as with the previous ones. Now, tying a knot, the thread can be cut.
Step 6.Make a loop for the ball. To do this, take a silver or gold thread and a needle with a thick eye (you can divide the thick thread into thinner ones and thread one of them into the eye of the needle) and,From the middle, move the needle with the silver thread up, and at the very top, make a loop and tie a knot.
Step 7.Slightly open the ball sections to make it more lush.
