  • Decorate according to your taste.

Wool bells are pretty popular now, so you can also use them to decorate your home. You can put a fleece of wool on just the corners or the entire edge of the cushion.

  • Wrap the wool on a cardboard of the desired size.
  • After winding several times , carefully remove the cardboard.
  • Tie the middle of the ball with wool of the same color and divide it into two.
  • Cut the folded end of the wool ball.
  • Arrange the thread on the cut to make a bubble.
