Christmas Crafts for Dummies
A few of you wanted to know more about the felt ball garland I posted earlier this week. Truth be told, I'm not a crafty person. My attempts usually end with quiet resignation and mild embarrassment. Even in this instance, my initial goal was to make this beautiful wreath, but once I realized the dexterity, patience and number of felt balls required, I quickly changed the plan to a foolproof garland. Grab a needle and thread and string together some felt balls purchased on Etsy. Done. And you still get that crafty high.
Jordan of Oh Happy Day also made her own garland. I like how she gets more bang for her felt ball buck by spacing them out a bit.
Also pictured above, my other homemade decoration, a pretty bottle full of cranberries floating in water. Sometimes I amaze myself. Have a wonderful weekend and enter this week's giveaway if you haven't yet!
