For a ten balled chandelier you'll need the following:
Twenty five cardboard rings (mine were 6cm with a 3cm inner)
Six balls of wool
A foam ring (mine was 15cm)
Two metal washers (2.5cm)
Two wooden beads
Wrap wool around cardboard rings, trying to wrap reasonably firmly.
Continue until it becomes difficult to thread wool through.
You're pompoms need to be thick.
Carefully cut through the layers
Tie around the middle, and then remove the cardboard.
Trim any longer threads.
Wrap the foam ring, covering twice.
Wrap the two metal washers.
Wrap each of the remaining five cardboard rings.
Stack the cardboard rings, metal washers and beads together. I used invisible thread to attach them to one another.
Using wool matching your foam ring, tie four strands to the ring, then feed through the stack. This is how your pompoms will hang.
Using your invisible thread, attach each of the pompons to the foam ring, varying the lengths.
This would be the perfect mobile for a nursery or playroom, but for us, it's perfect for our lounge room.
They can be quite time consuming to make, but terribly addictive. My youngest LOVED making these (and she was faster than me).
