Ring a ding ding...


Keyring to be precise.... while playing with more wool tops i wanted to try and make some rings so i started to roll a couple of different coloured tops together in a ball shape, but it just started to go horribly wrong... and the shape i ended up with was not quite what i had hoped for, kinda ended up with a small bowl shape, please don't ask me how, it just happened lol... nether the less i kept it and decided to turn it into a keyring as with just the right charm for the center gap it was perfect, i fed a piece of wire from the charm through to the top of the felt and attached a key chain. i then glued the charm in place using E6000 to keep it all in place.
...


The back came out kinda funky with 2 of the colours in kinda a swirl pattern, this was how i was hoping the ball would turn out but hay ho, i still ended up with a funky piece of art!
Thanks for popping in, come back soon x
