I ordered a bunch of felted balls from http://www.ornamentea.com/FiberArts.htm a while ago. And finally I got around to use them;) I think its nice to make one really nice x-mas decoration every year, as it is extra nice to rediscover the nice pretty decorations every year. This wreath was made by using a straw wreath as a base.
Heres how I did it:
Put 5 balls on your thread and lay them over the top of the wreath. Wrap your thread around the wreath and put the needle into the side of the first ball to secure it. Put 5 more balls on your thread and repeat the operation. Make sure that you fill the gaps between the balls, making sure that theyre not in straight rows. See the photo. It sure takes time, but it turns out just perfect! More photos can be seen here: http://www.pickles.no/wonderful-wreath/

I love your wreath!

I make lots of wreaths, also with straw bases, (see my Flickr), but I've never done one with felted balls.

Instead of using thread, you could also use a hot glue gun to attach them.

Beautiful!
