So my house was looking pretty bleak after all the Holiday goodness was stripped away. Especially our mantle that once held garland, decor and stockings that were hung with care.
So in an attempt to jazz it up I made this little number with some left over felt I had from another project.
Don't you love it?! I was going to make a bunting banner but felt like I wanted something a little more, I dunno. like THIS!
So this is what you'll need if you are dying for one and must make one right now!
- Felt (by the yard, felt pieces will be too small unless you desire smaller bows, which is totally fine)
- Coordinating color of thread
- Jute or Ribbon (or any other type of string you want to string your beauties on)
- Hot Glue Gun or Fabric Glue
Disclaimer: I cut the bows this length & width because it was the size of fabric I had left. You could totally make adjustments according to what you have.
Oh and don't judge me on the lighting differences on the photos. I gotta work around naps and bed time people.
For this next step I went and strung it on my mantle and spaced them out how I wanted before gluing them down. Not Necessary.
Easy Peasy One-Two-Threesy!
See what a simple fix? From Blah to Ahhh just by using some scrap material!
Besides the new garland, I love that I can display some rad gifts I had received. The "Be anxious for Nothing" framed print is from Shan(she actually bought it because of this post. LOVE HER!)
and the yarn letter "E" is from sweet Dawna
Let me know if you end up making one! I would love to see how yours turn out!
Also I'm linking up with Kimmie this week.
