DIY: Holiday Mantel Garland

This adorable DIY garland is super simple and quick, and makes a fun addition to the
 holiday decor!

After searching the web for a tree outline that I liked, I downloaded and printed it out.  An image that was simple and a silhouette was exactly what I was after.
I've uploaded my image, so if you like it you don't have to go looking :).

 I took felt sheets that I already had from a project last year and traced the shape of the tree onto each with a Sharpie.  You could use any type pen or marker as long you can see the lines once traced. 

Then I cut each shape out and also cut 2 small slits vertically on each so that the ribbon could run through, while also providing support for the felt pieces.

I then ran a piece of gold ribbon through each piece, alternating my color cut-outs.

Then it's done!  This  project probably took a total of an hour.

There are a ton of variations of this project.  You could use different shapes.  Instead of felt you could choose fabric or paper. Choosing different colors or prints would look great too! 

Happy Crafting!
