Have a Ball with This Project!
As seen in our Felt Moonrise Poppy project post — get crafty with these felt billy balls and leaves! These billy balls, modeled after an actual flower from an Orange Ball Tree, are called Orange Ball Buddleja. In tandem with the Moonrise Poppies and leaves, they add such unique flair to a bouquet. Using the all-new Cricut Maker, this project is a breeze! If you don’t have access to a cutting machine, you can also cut by hand. We’ve included both SVG and PDF files to give you the option. Enjoy!

The link to the Billy Balls-premade does not work. Is there an updated link or item for this particular item?
Hi Portia. I have updated the links to the felt balls in our shop.
What do you make the balls with…the instructions here don’t cover that part. Is there another tutorial on making the balls themselves?
Hi Marilyn, they’re pre-made felted balls (listed in the Materials).
Where are the directions for making the billy balls that go with the moonrise peony?
In the photo tutorial in this post, as well as the download below (they’re referred to as orange-ball flowers).
I love this idea, very creative!
