I bought these paper balls (don't know if there is another name for them as well) in a craft shop and intend to needle felt around them to make Christmas tree decorations or something (maybe gnomes or other creatures as well), but how do I best go about doing it? Any help is greatly appreciated! Maybe it is explaned somewhere in a step by step instruction...

Still wishing for a Tunisian crochet kit. Would be happy to personal swap for one. I have fabrics and all sorts of stuff to swap for.

I'm a wet felter, and can suggest wet felting around an object will work for a sphere.
Here are two "spheres" I wet-felted  Wink

I'm not the mot experienced needle-felter, but wouldn't the paper balls just blunt the needles?
I would have thought styrofoam balls may have been more needle friendly
