Whip up a sweet little garland out of felt and string in nothing flat–decorate the mantle, swag across a mirror, or embellish a homework station like I did!
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own:
To begin, cut a piece of twine to your desired length, and lay it out flat in a line. Next, make a fold in your first color of felt, and cut a circle out from your felt leaving just a tiny bit of the folded edge un-cut, so the circles are joined.
Open up the circles, and apply glue to one side. Lay the twine across the middle of the glued circle.
Fold the other circle on top of the glue to sandwich the twine between the two circles.
Keep cutting circles, and spacing them along your twine. It’s as easy as that!
If you don’t want dots, cut squares. Fold the felt over, and leave the folded edge uncut to be one whole side of your square. Repeat the same process for gluing as for the circles.
In nothing flat you can have a cheery little garland to brighten up your spaces!
