Easy 4th of July Felt Star Garland

Easy Felt Star Garland

Felt garlands are easy to make and they add such a festive touch to any party or holiday.  I wanted to spruce up my 4th of July decor by adding a felt star garland.

How to Make a Felt Star Garland_Tutorial

I cut out the stars individually by hand out of craft felt.  My star was about 2 inches x 2 inches.  I arranged them in a red, white and blue pattern and started sewing.  I went from one star tip straight across to the other tip and kept going tip to tip for each star.  I found that pulling the already sewn stars gently helped the banner from bunching up while I was sewing.

After your done with the felt banner, just wrap it around a piece of cardboard like I did with my circle felt banner below.

Large Wood Horse Wall Art and Silhouette Portrait Giveaway

DIY Large Wood Horse Wall Art

Saddle up friends cause we’ve got a great giveaway today!! You may have noticed the Silhouette Circle button on my sidebar… I am working with the good people from Silhouette now and to kick things off I get to giveaway a Silhouette Portrait!!  I am so excited to be an affiliate with Silhouette.  As you can tell from my Silhouette page, I LOVE my Silhouette!! It is hands down my favorite crafting tool and probably gets used almost daily.  Take for instance, this lovely Large Wood Horse Wall Art.  It started off with me asking my sister-in-law if I could help her with one of the upcoming birthday parties she was planning.  She was doing a cowgirl theme and the weather on the day of the birthday was not looking good.  She needed to get some indoor activities put together and asked in I could do a pin the tail on the horse game.

Enter the Silhouette (and some leftover pieces of our wood flooring). [Read more…]
