From making all our fancy dress costumes we have a lot scrap pieces of felt fabric. Not wanting to waste anything, we decided to make these pretty felt garland decorations for our Christmas tree. They would also be perfect decorations for a birthday party. If you don't have felt fabric you could get the same effect by using painted scraps of cardboard.
MATERIALS: Felt, wooden beads, plastic melty beads, thread and a needle.
DIRECTIONS: Cut you felt scraps up into small shapes then begin threading them onto a string with a needle alternating with plastic and wooden beads.
