Intro: DIY Christmas Garland
This DIY Christmas Garland is a great way to add a bit of festive colour to your bedroom/house. It's really easy to make and can be completed in an afternoon.
Step 1: Materials
- red and green
- thread and needle
- sequins/ beads (optional)
Step 2: Cut Out Shapes
Cut out as many felt shapes as you think you'll need for your garland. I chose heart and Christmas tree shapes as they were both simple and festive! I also cut out smaller shapes of different coloured felt and sewed them on top of the larger shapes.
Step 3: Decorate
Decorate the felt shapes with sequins and beads. You can sew around the edges of each shape for added decoration.
Step 4: Attach Ribbons
Form a loop with each ribbon and stitch them onto the top of each felt shape.
Step 5: String Shapes Onto the Twine
Cut a long piece of twine and string it through the ribbon loops on each felt shape.
Step 6: Hang It Up!
Hang up the garland so everyone can admire you're work!
