DIY Felt Balls

I always thought felt balls were really tricky to make but turns out after you mess up two or three and learn how to finess the felt they are pretty easy. Here's how you can make your own!

Before you start you'll need loose felt (you can find it at Michael's or really any craft store) a bowl of hot dish soap water (just a small squirt of dish soap will do) and a bowl of hot water.

1. Take a piece of felt about the length of your hand and thin and spread it out flat across your hand.
2. With the hand not holding the felt scoop a small amount (about the size of a quarter) of hot soapy water into the center of the felt ball.
3. Begin to roll the ball together until the water is no longer concentrated in the center. Continue to repeat this process of placing water in the center and rolling the ball until it starts to form together. Once the ball is formed together rinse it in the hot non soapy water and then place more soapy water in it and roll again. Repeat this process of rinsing and adding more soapy water and rolling until it forms into a tightly formed ball.

You're done!
