Circle Garland

Materials
  • Scissors
  • Fabric circle cutter
  • Cutting mat
  • 2 sheets of 9” x 12” felt
  • Glue gun and hot glue sticks
  • 1 6’ long ribbon, approximately 2” thick

Directions
1 Using scissors or a fabric circle cutter on a cutting mat, cut as many 1” circles out of your felt sheets as you can. (48 1” circles should get you a 6’ garland).

2 Glue the circles to the ribbon, about 1/2” apart, offsetting them on both the top and bottom edges of the ribbon for visual interest. Let the glue dry completely and hang.

Makes: 1 6’ garland

Fringe Garland

Materials
  • Scissors
  • 1 9” x 12” sheet of felt
  • 1 10’ piece of twine
  • Glue gun and hot glue sticks

Directions
1
Cut 108 1/2”-by-2” rectangles from your sheet of felt. Arrange four of the rectangles side by side in front of you, leaving approximately half an inch between each. Run a line of hot glue down the centre of the four rectangles.

2 Working quickly, grasp a length of the twine and press into the glue; hold in place until the glue is set. Move to the side and repeat with the remaining rectangles and twine until you come to the end. Let the glue dry completely and hang.

Makes: 1 10’ garland
