DIY felt garland

Garlands and bunting are so trendy right now, so we thought we’d make a vibrant felt garland to drape over a table or hang on a wall. This garland is super easy to make. The most time-consuming part is cutting out your circles. To make it quicker, we used the Fiskars circle shape template to draw our circles onto the felt.

To make a flower template, draw three different-sized flowers onto cardboard and cut out. Our flowers measure 45mm, 70mm and 100mm in diameter. Make a circle template (or use a Fiskars circle shape template). Our circle measures 50mm in diameter.

Place flower templates onto felt and draw around them with tailor’s chalk.

Place circle templates onto felt (we’ve used five different felt colours for our circles) and draw around them – or use your Fiskars circle shape template, as we have.

Cut out shapes.

Line up circles on a table to determine your colour pattern, then stitch a straight line with green sewing thread right down the centre of the circles without overlapping.

You can, of course, use a difficult coloured thread, depending on the felt colours you choose for your circles. We liked the idea of a dark, contrasting colour.

Step 3

Place the smallest flower shape over the middle-sized flower shape and machine stitch a starburst in the centre with purple thread (see photo below).

Hand-stitch the largest flower shape on the bottom.

To make different sized flowers, stitch the largest flower to only half of the two-layered flowers. That means half of your finished flowers will have two layers of petals, the other half will have three.

Hand-stitch the flowers to your garland.
