DIY-ify: Harvest Garland
Trend: Beautiful garlands!
Everywhere I look I see leaves covering the ground, but here and there I’ll spy a flower holding onto it’s bloom for just a little bit longer. The last little bits of summer are still here, mixed with fall. That’s what inspired this sweet thing. Here’s how you can make it for yourself…
- 2 felt sheets of each color you use (I used 3 colors)
- 1 sheet of red felt
- 3 yards of baker’s twine or yarn
- hot glue
- Choose a main color and cut out 1.5 – 2″ diameter circles (no worries about making the circles perfectly even). For the last two colors cut out 1″ diameter circles from one sheet and 1.5 – 2″ diameter circles from the other sheet.
- To make the first flower type, glue one felt circle in half. Fold again and glue. Glue the corners of about 5 to 8 folded circles together. Glue the flowers onto the baker’s twine as you go along. Repeat.
- To make the second flower type cut little strips into one side of 8 – 10 circles. Glue the uncut ends together. Glue onto the twine as you go along.
- Grab your red felt and cut tiny 1/2 inch circles. Glue onto baker’s twine as you go along.
- Hang and enjoy!
