DIY: Square Felt Garlands

I have been eyeballing several felt garlands for awhile and almost bought one while shopping the other day... then thought, why not make my own?  A few sheets of felt in the colors of my choice ($0.34 per 8.5 x 11 sheet, people!!), scissors, fabric cutter, thread, and my sewing machine later, and I am now the proud owner of two square felt garlands for my little's 1st birthday party in two weeks.  Hooray!
Super easy... you should try it!  I only used 5 sheets of felt for my two garlands.  With three colors, the navy/aqua/lime green garland is approximately 18 feet in length (cost to make: $1.02).  The two-color gold/orange garland is approximately 12 feet in length (cost to make: $0.68).  Not too large, I cut my squares to about 1.5 x 1.5 inches each.  Probably my favorite part is the idea that I can reuse both garlands for future birthday parties or to jazz up my little's bedroom.

This marks my first craft project for Cole's 1st birthday decorations.  I'll be sharing one, maybe two, more in the next two weeks.  Happy Friday, friends!
