Oh Martha Monday - Felt Balls

{Sorry I'm posting this so late. I got sidetracked trying to take the kid's christmas photo today... Trying is the key word here... Operation Christmas Photo, Part 2 starts tomorrow morning!}

Ever since I saw this lovely wreath last year, I've been wanting to make felt balls so I could create my own.

And of course, Martha has the tutorial!

I've been searching for places that sell wool roving and it really runs the gamut-- from Etsy to Walmart.  I don't think I'll have time for it this year, but definitely something to think about for 2011.  I love that the look is pretty timeless, I could hang this up in the summer and no one would blink an eye!
