Using felt to make a garland is easy and fun for custom decor making.
Creating quick and simple DIY home decor is so awesome with felt. It cuts so nicely with a sharp pair of scissors and doesn’t fray! Kunin Felt come in a variety of colors and can be found at your local craft store as well as many places online.
Materials and Supplies Needed
- Kunin Felt (Classic or Premium) in Rainbow Colors
- Sizzix Machine (Big Shot Pro) and Dies for Hearts and Back Pieces
- Hemp Cord Twine
- Fabric Glue or High Quality Craft Glue
Start by creating all of the felt pieces for the garland in the colors of the rainbow. Note that this project could also be done in a variety of shapes and colors far beyond the rainbow!
I used a heart die from Sizzix that I have in my stash and the base die from my collection of BADGES that I created for the Ellison branch of Sizzix that focuses on education/classrooms.
To use the Big Shot, you will simply put the felt on the soft side of the die, place it between two cutting pads and roll it through
Match the hearts up to the back pieces. By creating this layer, the garland will be a little more decorative and a lot stronger. Glue the hearts to the backs and let dry.
Flip the pieces over and use a long piece of twine to attach the pieces together. Be sure to glue at the TOPS of each piece so the garland will hang correctly. The garland can be as long or as short as you need for the place you intend to use it.
The garland looks stunning wrapped around a large glass jar but also is festive on an old door or wooden panel.
