Scrappy Garland -- Fab Felt Holiday Crafts : :

Have you seen Betz White's new online workshop, Fab Felt Holiday Crafts on Craftsy? Well if not, I am here today to introduce you! I have both of Betz's books and was overjoyed when she asked me to be a part of her new holiday workshop blog tour! I chose to make the "Scrappy Garland" to share here today. If you visit me often, you already know I love me some garland! Really, who doesn't?

Scrappy Christmas Garland

This one includes so much handmade goodness and so many things we all love --
felt (scraps - yes!), handmade pom poms, wool felt balls, jingle bells, and lots of COLOR!!

Scrappy Christmas Garland

To make for easy garland picture taking, I hung my lovely finished strand from our fireplace mantle. Come Christmas decorating time (that's the weekend right after Thanksgiving in our house) the plan is to hang this in the doorway that connects our kitchen to our dining room, I'm already excited!

My favorite thing about this garland are the fun felt scrap pom poms that Betz teaches you how to make, as well as being able to add in our own handmade touches like these snowflake felted balls.

I also enjoy that with this workshop, once logged on, I am able to skip around from project to project, pausing when needed, and even am able to take notes on the screen. It's so user friendly, the kids were able to join in, were such a huge help, and loved the workshop, too!
