Since we’re talking about necklaces, I wanted to show you the necklace that Otis and I made for his friend Amelia as a Christmas present. Otis and I went through my bag of wool roving and picked shades of pink, since she’s in a pink princess phase right now. Then we set ourselves up with warm water and soap at the kitchen sink and got to work. There are directions here and here (the second one’s a video, via wikstenmade) Before we set the felt balls to dry, I worked a long skewer through them so they looked like a rather unappealing appetizer and the next day, we were ready to string up our necklace with some colored nylon cord.
It was a fun, easy project to do together, and Otis was proud to give his friend something we had made together. This would make a great present for kids or adults!
