A note about the size of the felted balls: I was confused when I was ordering.  They are sized by CM which can be tough to judge size, because when you look at CM on a ruler, these do not match up.  For this garland, I used balls and hearts that are 3cm.  That is about  1″-1.25″ in diameter.  Size varies slightly because they are handmade.

Step 1: Line up the felted balls in the pattern you would like them to appear on your garland so that you can visualize what it will look like.

Step 2: Thread the needle and push it through the first felted ball.   Tip: I don’t cut the twine.  I make mine while the twine is still on the spool, that way I can cut it once I’m done to the length I want.

Step 3: Continue threading the felted shapes onto the twine until your garland is as long as you would like. Remember to leave twine at both ends for hanging.
