I discovered that I have a thing for garlands.

Over the holidays, I thought it would be fun to have some festive New Year’s Eve decorations to put up. I used this project from The Purl Bee to make the felt circles garland.

I made this one a few years ago with white pom poms and a variety of colorful beads, and decided it went well with the felt circles.

Then I got carried away and started working on garlands for Valentine’s Day, which is now right around the corner.

I don’t know where the idea came from doing the felt hearts, but it might have been based on other Purl Bee projects.

The paint chip garland I found on the Internet but I can’t find the right site. (Click on this one for a good reference.) It’s made from a variety of pink and red paint samples and a heart punch.

I think they are a simple way to make the house feel festive without feeling cluttered or overdone, no matter what the holiday or season.

  1. Hi Terri! Wow – so great garlands! I love those felted colourful circles! … and I love the white ‘snowballs’ with beads …. and ofcourse hearts!
    Thanks for a great idea and inspiration! x Teje

  2. I did these with circles punched out from paper (recycled greeting cards, old calendars. etc) for Christmas, and even used them to wrap gifts, since I can’t use curly ribbon on gifts (our oldest kitty eats it like it’s candy!!). I didn;t take pictures, but I plan to make more!

    Love your Valentine garland… and I need to email you to ask you a ? about Macs.
