Decorating for the holidays always makes me feel extra festive.  How about you?

I’m totally that person who decorates for fall at the beginning of August and Christmas decor is going up November 1st.  Sorry, Thanksgiving but your turkey decor just isn’t for me… however I will still show up and eat that green bean casserole.

What I don’t love about holiday decor is the expense!

I love to shop for decor after the holiday in question because it ends up being like almost free!  I also really love the Target Dollar area at the front of the store, and discount stores like TJMaxx and Home Goods!

I also really love making some of my own decor each year.

Cutest… well you can see for yourself!

Red, White and Blue Felt Stars Garland

Supplies Needed

One bag of sticky stars (mine are from Hobby Lobby at $2.99) but if you don’t have a Hobby Lobby close these are $7.99 from Amazon.

String (any kind.  I just happened to have some gold bakers twine laying around from Christmas)

Directions

Decide how long you need your garland to be and make sure to leave room on each end for hanging.

Peel the backing about 1/2 off, put your string between the backing and the sticky side of the star and then stick them back on again.

Keep going until your garland is complete

Pro Tip: Since your garland will be one-sided it is best if you put this one on a wall so the back cannot be seen.  If you need it two-sided you can always use two stars together, one on the front and one on the back.

 

Red, White and Blue Felt Tied Garland

Supplies Needed

Red, white and blue felt sheets.  (Mine came from Hobby Lobby at $0.79 each.  I used 6 total for my garland.  You can get these at any craft store or even Wal-Mart.  Or again you can get an assorted pack at Amazon for a bit more)


String (any kind – I again just used my baker’s twine)

Directions

Decide how long you need your garland to be and make sure to leave room on each end for hanging.

Cut your felt into strips.  Long ways.  About 1/4 inch wide.

Once you have cut all your strips, cut them all in half.

Tie the strip in a simple knot on the garland.

Keep trying… and tying.

Pro Tip: I started cutting with scissors until I remembered I owned a rotary cutter!  So much easier but if you only have scissors those will be perfectly fine.  You might just lose a little skin on your fingers after all that cutting! 

Red, White and Blue Circle Garland

Supplies Needed

Felt Sheets (1 each red, white and blue)

String

Hot Glue Gun

Directions

Originally I was going to sew these with a sewing machine but then I remembered I am a busy mom and I didn’t have time to get all that equipment out for a 4th of July project… maybe for Halloween or Christmas but not for this.

Measure your string

Use something circular to trace circles onto your felt.  I used a roll of tape.

Cut your circles out.  This was kind of a pain so this ended up being my shortest garland.

Place a tiny bit of hot glue in the middle of the felt circle and push your string into it.

Keep going until all your circles are complete.

Let’s see all those festive garlands!  Tag me on Instagram with your projects
