Make an inked-up garland with these gorgeous felt balls in ‘tattooed lady’ shades of old red, old pink, light green, sky blue, royal blue, peacock, lilac and teal. This set, in classic tattoo ink colours, is inspired by the tattooed carnival ladies who, at the turn of the 20th century, earned a living as real life works of art: think winged hearts, nautical stars, flying swallows, red roses...
BEAUTY * TRUTH * LOVE
Create your own pattern then thread the balls onto the embroidery floss using the tapestry needle provided. With 24 balls and a full skein of thread (8m) there is plenty of scope to make your garland as long or as short as you like: snuggled together, the balls cover approx 50cm; spaced 8cm apart they’ll make a garland almost 2.5m long.
With plenty of balls and thread, you might like to make two matching garlands or divide the colours and make two completely different ones. Or you may like to use some of your balls and thread to make a bag dangler or other accessory.
Simple to make, with full instructions, these cute felt ball garlands make a subtle and stylish addition to any room. They’re also great for glamping trips, classy camper vans and adding charm to summer garden parties.
Beautifully presented in an organza bag, this kit makes a pretty present, perfect party activity or a posh party bag. Gift the kit or make it yourself to give someone a special present handmade by you. Or make it to keep and enjoy it yourself.
