Hanging boughs of holly and popcorn is fine for the mantel, but you wouldn’t want to wear them yourself. I mean, think of all the cleavage sap full of popcorn crumbs.
If you’re looking to decorate yourself for the holidays while staying comfortable and chic, you won’t want to miss this free tutorial on how to make adorable, wearable garlands out of felt.
Bonus: it’s easy!
The Purl Bee Blog, which represents the popular yarn and fabric shop Purl Soho, always has
loads of adorable projects to knit, embroider, and sew. But we really
love the cheery Twisted Felt Garland
from guest blogger Molly’s Notebook. All you need to create necklaces
and bracelets for gifts–or a gorgeous garland for home decorating–are
felt, pins, a rotary cutter, and some sew-on snaps.
No sewing machine,
no giant knitting needles, no magic.
Whether you’re doing white and red or pink for Christmas, white and blue
for Hanukah, or black and white for a splashy New Year’s accent, the
garlands are easy to make and would be a great gift or a fun project for older girls–7
to 14, maybe. Just watch their pretty, pink-tipped fingers around that
Visit the Purl Bee for this easy felt garland tutorial. They sell the felt, too!
