I love this easy felt flower garland project for so many reasons. First of all, it is super cute. Second…it used felt scraps and I have so many of them in all the sizes and colors. It is easy peasy to make and can be done with a sewing machine, hand sewn or glued. This makes it a project that would work great with kiddos too. Once complete, it is adorable home decor or fabulous for a party too.
Easy Felt Flower Garland
Directions To Make Easy Felt Flower Garland
Start with the pattern. There is a free one to download that works great. Additionally, you can doodle some flower patterns onto paper then cut them out.
Next, use the patterns to trace onto your felt and then cut the pieces out. If you trace, it can be hard to cut around the pen marks. I usually pin my pattern to the felt and cut it with that method. It is a little bit trickier but definitely my preference.
Decide how you want to assemble the flowers and stack the pieces accordingly.
Next, it is assembly time. Sew (or glue) the pieces together. The Fabri-Fuse glue from Eclectic is amazing because it works great with felt and provides an elasticity that is long lasting so it won’t harden and crack.
Add the flower pieces to a long strand of ribbon. This could be any size. If additional colors of green are desired, add some petals and leaves to your garland.
How To Use Your Easy Felt Flower Garland
There are several fun ways to use the garland. I believe the first way is probably the most popular and that is to hang is as a decoration.
A second way to use it would be to place it down the center of a table as a runner. This would be a light and easy one to transport for a picnic or a party at a playground. This one was sewn on a sewing machine.
Additionally, the flowers can be glued to straws (or dowel rods) and added to party decorations like these rainbow kindness sprinkles.
