Place a cloth on a mat and apply a template. Take a small amount of a wool and start felting with a needle, gently punching the needle through the wool and the cloth. With a second hand keep the template in place, make sure that is not shifted. Work thoroughly at the edges of a pattern.

To make a cord, that will keep the garland together, join three threads and measure at least 2 meters. This length will be enough to make 50 cm garland, since we have to fold the thread 2 more times. To make a bigger ganrland just multiply the required lenght on 4, that will be a beginning number

Fold the yarn in two and secure the middle ot the thread, f.e. using a door handle, twist the skein until is it firm. Carefully remove the other side of a skein and fold in tn two again. Holding the ends, let the cord spin by itself into the rope

Under the last egg, we should have a long skein of yarn, that we can use for a tassel. Spin it around your fingers as shown on photo
