Today I'm excited to show you the felt leaf garland I made over the weekend. Even more exciting than the minimal cost, it came together in just a few hours and exactly how I wanted it! Don't you love when that happens?!
-wool felt (I used 2 12x18 pieces for 72 inches of garland and had extra leaves)
-leaf die cuts & die cut machine (I used the Essentials By Ellen Bold Blooms set)
-Die cut leaves. With my Big Shot, I was able to cut 2 layers of felt and with the 2 dies, I had 4 leaves with each pass. I was able to cut all my leaves in less than an hour.
-Cut 6 pieces of twine to desired length plus a little extra.
-Knot the pieces of twine together on one end and braid, securing with another knot.
-Stitch leaves on to twine braid, using the next leaf to cover the stitching on the previous leaf.
Hope you're having a great week!
P.S. I promise to share a pic after I actually hang my garland!
