DIY TUTORIAL: How to Make a Felt Letter Garland for All Occasions

I love garlands! They are some of my favorite decorations, so when I stumbled upon this felt garland tutorial from Rebekah of Twinkle and Twine, I had to write about it.

The best thing about this felt letter garland is that there is a "sew" and a "no-sew" version, so for the non-sewers like me, there's no need to feel intimidated. How great would this look on your mantle or even wrapped up as a holiday gift?




Check out the whole felt letter garland tutorial here.

Thank you, Rebekah, for creating this tutorial and introducing me to the wonders of freezer paper. :) To learn more about Rebekah and read about her crafting adventures, visit Twinkle and Twine.
