diy felt leaf garland tutorial.

When I saw this handmade felt leaf garland by Elsie, I knew that I had to figure out how to make one for myself! I love festive decorations, and thought this would make a fun addition to our Thanksgiving Day decor.


The materials you'll need:
  • three (or more depending on how long you want to make it) sheets of felt--I got mine at Wal-Mart in the kid's craft section for just $0.25 each.
  • yarn
  • marker or fabric pencil
  • scissors
  • crewel needle (it has a larger eye for the yarn to go through.)
  • needle threader

To start things off, I hand drew a little leaf...then, I cut it out to use as a guide to draw out the rest of the leaves. I drew about 10 leaves on each sheet of felt (for a total of 30 leaves.)


Next, I took my yarn. Cut it to the length I wanted it. And then pulled the yarn apart into two separate groups of two strands. (I hope that makes sense...if not, here's a picture for you below.)


Now it's time to thread the needle. I use a needle threader, because I just don't have the patience to thread that needle without it. :) Make sure to tie a knot at the end of your yarn.


Then start stitching away! Don't worry about it being in a perfectly straight line...I kind of like the imperfect look of it.


Once you've stitched one leaf, you overlap another leaf on top of it and sew it into place. Stitch & repeat. (I alternated my leaves--red, orange, brown--but you can do it randomly if you'd like.)


Just keep stitching until you've reached the desired length for your garland. And, VOILA! You have yourself a pretty little Thanksgiving garland that you can use year after year. :)

This little project only cost me $0.75 and took just an hour of my time. Plus, it was super fun to make!

    This is enough for me. I want to write software that anyone can use, and virtually everyone who has an internet connected device with a screen can use apps written in JavaScript. JavaScript Training in Chennai JavaScript was used for little more than mouse hover animations and little calculations to make static websites feel more interactive. Let’s assume 90% of all websites using JavaScript use it in a trivial way. That still leaves 150 million substantial JavaScript Training in Chennai JavaScript applications.
