DIY Sunday: Felt Leaf Garland.

"DIY Sunday"The Perfect Pear2 Comments
This weeks DIY is Leaf Garlands
I was really inspired by this Lady's blog right here
her leaf garland is beautiful with such great colours
I got really inspired and wanted to see if I could make them
I took it into my own hands and here's what I came up with.
And Actually hers were inspired by Elsie's from A Beautiful Mess, so basically
its just a big circle of inspiration

Enjoy

Felt Leaf Garlands
To Start you'll need Embroidery Thread, A needle,
Scissors and optional: paper, only if your a perfectionist
I personally didn't use one. It got to finicky
And of course any colour felt. I chose to use only
dark green and cream, they were the only colours I had
that went together.
.
This is for those perfectionists who like to have everything
look the same. So make your designs and cut out only
the inside.
................................................................................
Cut out the leaves and arrange the way you wish.
Then do a running stitch going through the leaf
as if it were the veins. p.s. theres a typo
hey, accidents happen.
Keep going, just adding leaf after leaf.
Get to desired length then tie a knot.
There you go VOILA! I love it. I think mine
is going on my bed or around my mirror, or even
on my computer. But I was thinking that it could
also be used as a necklace type of scarf.
So versatile.
