I discovered that I have a thing for garlands.
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.
