I've been doing fiber crafts since about 2005 when I caught the feltmaking bug after taking a college fiber arts course. That obsession quickly turned into a small business which I playfully named "The Funky Felter" and opened an Etsy shop as well as started selling at craft shows across the Midwestern United States.

how to make felted wool balls easy craft tutorial for dryer balls or decorations

Like many of you who have been wet felting or needle felted for a while, wool balls or beads are probably one of the first things you tried making. Me too! I have been creating handmade felted wool balls in all shapes, colors and sizes for several years now. I have used them mainly in making felted jewelry and also as embellishments for fiber art pieces. 

You can see many examples of what I've done with my own felt wool beads at my Flickr gallery. I still have shoes boxes full of all sorts of colors that I keep on hand for future projects. Honestly, I just find them fun and so easy to make that I use up my scraps on them. My five year old also likes making them with me as they are a very kid-friendly felting project.
