DIY St. Patrick's Day Felt Garland

Are you Going Green Yet?
It's about that time ...
St. Patrick's Day is on the horizon!

I loved my last LOVE felt garland so much, that I knew I wanted to create one for St. Patrick's Day!



What you need:
2 pieces of Green Felt (.29 each)
Green Thread (I had)
1 pkg. little foam balls (3.00)
Gold Glitter Paint (.59)

Start by painting your foam balls with the gold paint.
Set aside to dry.

Take one piece of your felt, cut in half.

Match up the sides, and sew down one side.

Flip it inside out to create the "Heart" shape.
Now sew the loose side together.

You are actually going to sew 2 lines. 
(see above)
Then trim off the bottom.

Now cut up to create your "cloves"

Once you have 4 cut, get your glue gun and drop a dot as shown and glue together.

Squeeze it together

Finished 4 Leaf Clovers

Double up the thread, and start stringing.
Ball, Clover, Ball, Clover...

Something like this!


Stunning yet Simple
St. Patrick's Day Garland!
