Yesterday I got off of work early and, instead of going home and just hanging around while I waited for Nate to get home, I decided that I wanted to flex my creative muscles by making something! So I pulled out my smartphone and pulled up my Pinterest craft board and settled on trying to replicate this Anthropologie felted garland, but with a Valentine's flare. It turned out so cute!
step one: gather your materials. You will need felt in a variety of colors, string, and scissors. I used seven different colors of felt, but, naturally, you can use any variety your little heart desires.
step two: make some strips. Remember, it doesn't matter how perfect they are. Thin or fat, it all looks good.
how to cut strips for fuller garland:
step four: cut your string to the desired length of your garland. Remember to add a few extra inches on each end for hanging.
step five: begin tying your strips onto your string! And tie, and tie, and tie :]
step six: finished! Hang, drape, or style your garland however you please. XO
*note* since I live in an apartment and don't really want to put holes in the walls, I hung my garland using Washi Tape, but it isn't the strongest, and my garland kept sliding, so I tied a little knot on the end on my string to hold my garland in place and that seems to have done the trick.
