Make a beautiful Temari ball originating from China
Originating in China but now made in Japan – how beautiful are these temari balls? They are easier to make than you think and will be fabulous on your tree or if you can bear to part with them, as a gift for a friend. In Japan the gift of a temari ball, with its brilliant colours and designs, symbolises deep friendship and loyalty as well as a happy life.
