So, I couldn't resist one final, last minute Christmas decoration. I had so much fun making my Felt Scraps Garland last week, I thought I'd make another one and dress it up a little.
I followed the same plan as I did with my original felt scraps garland, braiding about four and a half feet of a pearl colored yarn that I bought at the thrift store.
Once my long yarn braid was complete, I wove it into some gold fashion chain I couldn't resist buying last time I was at the fabric store. Side note: Can I just say that I really enjoyed working with the chain? It was so easy to play with, and I was so pleased with how it completely changed the look from my original garland.
This time instead of using varying shades of green felt, I stuck with olive and ivory felt leaves. I stitched each leaf on after the braid was woven into the chain.
And finally, I added a few buttons. I really, really liked the hammered finish of the button pictured above.
I gotta say, I am delighted with how my dressed up felt scrap garland turned out!
Glad you stopped in!
