This garland is so cute and so easy to make! I used some wool felt and just cut squares a bit over an inch square…then I strung them onto coordinating baker’s twine.
I love the way it turned out! I made each one 12-14 feet long so it will actually make a few circles around the tree.
The wind was really strong today, you can see how the garland was blown all around!
I made the garland from this sweater…it has the best colors! Bright lime green, bright red and blue. Perfect for a garland.
I am working on getting the Christmas tree up and the decorations out later today, then this garland will hang on the tree!
I am linking to these great parties…
I love it!
