Today the girls and I made Spring Garlands, some will be going into our Etsy shop for sale. I thought I would share a tutorial with you:)
Spring Garland / Mobile Tutorial:
Needle and thread
Cut and join your wire, I just joined mine firmly with tape.
Attatch your ribbon with tape, sew it fast and wind your ribbon around your wire making sure to overlap each time.
Once you have reached the end, sew your ribbon securely.
Wind your little craft roses around your garland.
I cut out butterfly shapes from my stash of rainbow felt.
Folded them over and sewed them together, making them look like their wings are upright.
Attached a handle so that the garland can hang.
I sewed a little abdomen onto the middle of the butterfly to weight it so that it would hang nicely and then I took some embroidery thread and attached it onto the garland.
And there you have it, a Spring garland….
Happy Tuesday everyone,
