Since making our Fall Bucket List and marking a few things off, I have been itching to add more Halloween and fall to our house.
We are seriously lacking in the decorations department (i.e. all we have are some of my mom's old decorations) so to make up for that, I have been wanting to get crafty.
I have always admired those adorable felt garland, whether it be for fall, spring or the holidays and have been itching to make one.
I decided that would be the first (and probably easiest) craft to tackle.
I had full intentions of going to Hobby Lobby later this week to stock up on felt and the necessities.
Before I went, though, I wanted to see what I had in my stash at home.
Lo and behold I had enough stocked away to create my own garland!
I know I am not reinventing the wheel with this garland but here is what I used to make mine.
-patterned fabric (left over from our bedroom window treatments)
-hot glue gun
I started by cutting out circles of varying sizes
(I am sure these would be prettier if I had used a template but I was just winging it)
Next I measured my ribbon and laid out the circles to make sure I had enough
I placed about an inch's worth of hot glue on the ribbon and started laying down the circles until I reached the end
The first strand went so quickly that I decided to whip up a second one as well!
I love the little touch of fall they give our space!
Have you whipped up an DIY projects lately?
