Good morning to you, bloggy friends!
I trust your day is off to a beautiful start and you're ready to enjoy the upcoming weekend :)
I have a cute little garland I want to share with you
and hopefully it will inspire you to make one for your sweet home.
In my mind the felt flowers were supposed to look like snowflakes,
but in the end then turned out like flowers...
although, they kind of resemble a poinsettia so I guess that is okay :)
This garland is perfect for hanging on the Christmas tree, above the window,
or anywhere you heart desires.
To make your own you will need:
styrofoam glitter balls
beads or embellishments for centers
hot glue gun and glue
large sewing needle
Cut out 6 shaped petals and a small circle from the felt.
Size does not matter - make your petals big for a larger flower or small for a smaller flower.
Apply a dot of hot glue on the the end of each petal and pinch together.
Then hot glue each petal to the felt circle.
For the bead centers I usually use fabric glue to glue the beads on,
but I used hot glue this time and it turned out just the same, plus it dried a lot faster :)
So apply hot glue to the center and pour beads onto the glue; press gently to set.
Thread your needled with string, lots of string (I used crochet thread)
and thread through two flower petals.
Then add a styrofoam glitter ball (I found mind at Michael's last year).
The needle should go right through the ball.
Make it as long as you want :)Mine has 8 felt flowers and is the right length for hanging above my living room window
near the Christmas tree.
May each one of you have a delightful day!
