A few days ago I got this idea, and I am so excited about how it turned out! But the best part about it? This is made from a little wool felt, a few felted balls and some vintage velvet ribbon. I had some creamy wool roving that I turned into felt balls (here’s a similar tutorial on how to do that), but you could use little mini pompoms, or buttons, or pearls.
