I actually finished a craft! This is quite the accomplishment for me. Often times I get so caught up in finding pretty, neat things online that I can’t find the time to try them out. And usually on the occasion I do happen to start a project I either don’t finish it or it turns out to be a bust.
So I’m proud to announce, my felt garland. And please excuse the blurriness of the photos. I had to go no flash to really see the colors. I should’ve dragged the tripod out.
I originally saw the idea from Ali Edwards a couple of weeks ago. I’ve been working on it on and off for about a week now. I bought the large felt sheets from Hobby Lobby and cut into small squares. They were not all perfectly the same size by any means. I think a little variation makes it more fun. I threaded the squares together with floral wire.
It’s a very time consuming project, but it’s nice because you really don’t have to ‘think’.
And just for kicks..check out our new foyer! More info to come soon on this little makeover. No stockings yet. Those are also on the ‘to do’ list.
We used this for our wedding last year. We hung 2 on the doors of the reception hall with a satin sash with our initials on it. My mom put these together. I love how simple and bold they are. I’ll probably rehang them for Valentine’s day as well 🙂
