Now onto the DIY…
A few weeks ago I saw a wool felt tree skirt on the Magnolia site and I thought it might be fun to make one myself! So I found all of the supplies at my new favorite Etsy shop Crafty Wool Felt. They sell wool felt by the yard and the most wonderful felt balls! They also come in heart shapes! Crafty Wool Felt also sells all of the supplies you need to make wool felt garlands which I am making right now!
What You Will Need:
- 1 1/2 yds. crafty wool felt (if 54″ wide) If 36″ wide, purchase two yards.
- 50 crafty wool felt balls
- Cotton off-white twine
Cut a 46″ round circle from the felt. If your fabric isn’t wide enough, cut 9″ from the end of the fabric and hand sew each strip to each edge to make the fabric wider.
Measure around the perimeter of the circle and mark every 3″ win a straight pin.
Using a running stitch, sew in between the pins. To add a wool felt ball at each pin, just measure enough string for the ball to lay flat. Insert the needle into the ball and then insert back into the ball. Make a full loop to secure the felt ball.
Once completed, mark three locations 6″ apart for the closures. Sew three strips of felt to make the loops and attach the felt wool balls.
Continue the running stitch all the way around the tree skirt.
All you have to do is follow the instructions below to enter to win the $150 Amazon gift card!
