Because Christmas is just a little more special with handmade decorations, I decided to make a merry and bright Christmas banner...out of felt. Christmas and felt. There isn't anything much better than that.
This inexpensive handmade Merry Christmas garland can be customized with the colors you select and/or the holiday saying you want to create.
So, go grab some felt and let's get start. I opted to go bright and cheery as opposed to traditional. Make this garland your own and select colors that make you happy.
Using a water soluble pen, trace your letters. Each letter will be layered so you'll need to cut out 2 of every letter.
Using a running stitch (or a sewing machine, to save yourself time), sew around each letter. Leave roughly 1/2 an inch unsewn on each side of your letter.
By leaving this section of every letter unsewn, you will be able to string twine or ribbon through it and adjust your letters later, based on where you decide to hang it.
Finish stringing your letters...
