• Felt Heart Garland

    Felt Heart Garland 1

    I am very lucky to have ten grandchildren or grandlittles as I like to refer to them.  This weekend one of the littles was over for a visit. She loves to craft and decorate so we decided to make a heart garland for her room and our family room.

    Die cut Hearts 2

    With our selection of so many felt colors and patterns to choose from that was the first big decision. We used a mix of Classicfelt™, Glitter Felt and Fancifelt™. Then it was onto die cutting many hearts. This little is a pro with my Big Shot. She cut out all the hearts using Design Team member Laura Kelly’s heart die

    We used:

    • 9” x 12” craft cuts Kunin Eco-Fi Fancifelt™, Red Midnight Swirl, Shocking Pink Princess Heart, White Damask, White Chevron
    • 9” x 12” craft cuts Kunin Eco-Fi™ Classicfelt™, Lilac, White
      9” x 12” craft cuts Kunin Eco-Fi™ Glitterfelt™, Fuchsia
    • 3-4 yards Ribbon
    • Buttons
    • Laura Kelly Heart Die and Big Shot by Sizzix
      Scissors, ruler
      TIP: From each craft cut you can die cut two hearts.

    1. Decide on your pattern and length of garland. Die cut hearts.

    2. Time to decorate. I keep a big box of buttons for crafting with the littles. Every heart was decorated with an assortment of brightly colored buttons carefully glued in place.

    3. The hearts were arranged and glued to a ribbon along the back. We spaced them about 2” apart.
