In years past, I felt my tree was missing a layer. It's needed more love, more texture, and a better garland. I just knew when I saw this idea in Do it Yourself magazine, that I had found my Christmas tree's perfect match. Unfortunately, the magazine vanished and has not been seen in weeks. Very depressing. However, I did find this sweet little blog's diy circle garland post, and found the circle template to be very helpful.
I used two sheets of each five colors of felt. If you make a garland, put on a movie, and/or break it into a couple of days, because it does take some time. What is great, is that I was able to create 20 yards of felt Christmas tree garland for four dollars. You can't beat it, and the intrinsic value of a craft complete and looking pretty, makes me smile.
