I’m going to be honest about this post. I made the garland last year, but couldn’t actually get myself to put a post together before the holidays. So I am finishing it off this year.
One reason I love the holiday season is because it totally inspires me to make charming little holiday decorations! Last year, I made these felt trees.
My inspiration was found in the West Elm catalog.
I know…looks very similar. I barely have the time to get crafts done, and definitely don’t have time to come up with them myself…so sometimes I just put my own minimal spin on them!
Then I made little pom poms by wrapping butcher twine around my fingers about 15 times and then using thread, I cinched it at opposite sides, tightly tied the thread in to a knot, And then cut the twine about 3/8 inch from threaded cinch and fluffed it a bit. And lastly using needle and thread, I sewed the little pom pom through the felt flower and around some jute twine.I envisioned putting it around the tree, but decided 10 flowers was enough for me, and it goes perfectly around the doorway!
It’s not super holiday-ish so it can easily stay up all year round…which of course mine did!
Have you found any great Holiday crafts?!
