I’m starting to get in the Christmas spirit, and this piece from my friend Mel over at A Peace of Creativity sure helps. Check out her post about making beautiful and easy garland for your tree. Fun for the kiddos too!
Last year, I felt like our Christmas tree was missing something. It was filled with lights and ornaments but still did not feel full. I decided to make a traditional ringed garland out of felt so that I could reuse it year after year.
I cut colorful 1 inch by 5 inch strips… and glued the ends together with tacky glue in rainbow order.I made three separate strands so that it would be easier to work around the tree. (Actually I only string it 3/4 around the front. Shhh!) Between holidays, I use an embroidery hoop to store it and keep it from getting tangled.
