I'm not typically big on decorating for holidays. It feels like by the time I get something out, it's time to put it away and get out another set of decorations. We missed the boat on Valentine's Day. But, since we're home for February break, I thought it might be time we made a St. Patrick's Day garland.
I grabbed my big bag of felt scraps and pulled out all the green shades and some white. I punched out a cardboard circle and my daughter and I got to work tracing and cutting. We cut 47 circles, then laid them out in a random pattern.
I stacked them up in order, which was really helpful when it came time to sew. I didn't have to worry about the pattern. Just grab the circle on top and sew.
I left just a tiny bit of space in between each circle. I've seen these kinds of garlands done many times, but never actually done it myself. So easy.
Reminds me of Spring.
Guess I can keep it up for a while beyond St. Patty's Day. Definitely my kind of decorating.
