Want to green up your laundry game? Make a custom set of felted wool dryer balls! This easy-to-follow tutorial from Kara on Petals to Picots will show you how to make your own dryer balls in three different ways: repurpose and reuse an old wool sweater, use leftover wool yarn, or make some wooly works of art with wool roving.

I love the idea of using simple, natural solutions for everyday tasks. If I didn’t live in the land of no in-apartment laundry (a.k.a. Brooklyn), I’d totally toss the dryer sheets and give this a try ASAP!

Ready to get started? Head on over to Petals to Picots to see the full how-to.

Do you already use wool dryer balls in your laundry routine? Tell us what you think! Do they really shorten drying time and replace traditional dryer sheets?
