  • White, bright red, dark red, dark blue, and aqua felt
  • Embroidery floss in complementary hues
  • Assorted vintage buttons
  • 1/4-inch-wide red grossgrain ribbon
  • Turquoise and red yarns
  • Small pom-pom maker

Instructions:

1. Cut grosgrain ribbon to desired length and then create as many two-ply flowers as desired to fill out the length.

2. Embellish each flower with smaller felt flowers and a button or two. Use fabric glue to adhere the flowers together; stitch buttons to flower centers.

3. Make 1-inch-diameter yarn pom-poms, following pom-pom maker instructions. Using an embroidery needle, thread pom-poms onto ribbon. Place flowers between pom-poms. To easily arrange the garland elements, attach them with stitches looped over (instead of through) the ribbon first.

4. Hang the garland, select the final position of flowers and pom-poms, and then permanently attach them by stitching through the forms and ribbon. Attach dangling flowers by stitching at the top of a petal.
