christmas garland

I spotted this garland in the Christmas shop in Jonesborough a while back. Excuse the sad photo quality, but it’s felt flowers with a button in the center attached to a wire covered in green cloth.

My natural reaction? I could make that.

So I did. Or rather, I made something similar.

I built my flowers out of red ribbon. If you stitch up the side of the ribbon, pull tight, and tie it off, you get a nice little flower shape. I didn’t have any white buttons, but I did have some ugly brown buttons and a can of spray paint. The leaves were just cut from pieces of felt.

I sewed the buttons to hold the flowers onto the ribbon.

I’m not going to lie, I worked on this on and off for a while- it was not an afternoon project. But I’m fairly pleased with the way it turned out and I think it looks pretty cute on the tree..

Now for the rest of those ornaments…
