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.
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.
Wrapping the banner around a piece of cardboard keeps the felt garland from getting tangled or breaking.
