Simple Felt Garland {St. Patrick’s Day Decor}

I feel like I’ve never posted a project on here that’s not quick and easy.  It gets a little redundant to call them all that, but seriously that’s the only kind of project I do!  :)

For this project, I was inspired by the adorable heart felt garland found at  Calico Skies and also by my lovely sister’s valentine’s garland (also inspired by Calico Skies).

All you really need is 2 pieces of felt, a pair of scissors, a needle and thread, and some tape.  Although having a piece of thicker paper around is helpful to trace the circle shape with.

Oh, and if you’re like me, a trip to the Dollar Tree to get a sewing kit.  Yup, that’s right.  I am SO not a seamstress! haha

 

Decide what sizes you want, and make a template…

Cut out as many circles as you want…

Then take a needle and thread and sew it through each circle, and hang it up wherever you’d like around the house!

Voila!  Easy, fun, cheerful pop of green when I walk inside my door.

I went with circles because it’s SO much easier to cut them out.  You could totally do four-leaf clovers if you were feeling ambitious, though.  Good luck with that. ;)

 

Psssst…..here’s my living room on any given morning, thanks to one very destructive active 2-year-old little boy.  Feel better about yourself now?! hahaha
