Project Nest is P&N's sweet, little handmade haven.
So lock and load those glue guns and pull out your popsicle sticks, mamas, it's about to get crafty in here!
Celebrate and decorate any time of year. It's as easy as (pumpkin…yum) pie!
Project: Felt garland
Total cost:Around $5: the felt was 25 cents per piece, for a grand total of $1.25 (and I have a lot left over for a future project!); the needle was $3; and the twine was 20 rolls for $10, making this roll about 50 cents. I already had the scissors.
Total time: 30 minutes or less
• Sharp scissors (mine are fabric scissors)
• Large needle
I grabbed the felt and needle at Michael’s; the twine came from a Very Jane [link: ] deal a few month’s back. (You can also find twine easily on the internet, and I have seen it in craft stores as well.)
Hang it around the table, decorate baby’s highchair—I use these happy garlands for everything. (True story: I have a season/holiday appropriate strand of these for every month of the year in my closet, and there is always one on my mantle. They also make great tree decor, if you’re celebrating a certain holiday next month.) You can make them as long or short as you want, and if you have a sewing machine, you can skip the twine and sew right down the middle of each circle—just as cute and just as simple. Also consider mixing up your shapes—hearts, diamonds, clovers—if you can trace it, you can create it!
