Confetti Garland

While preparing for the Beanie Baby Birthday Bash
I came up with this super fun birthday garland.

I love it because it is so colorful and it looks like huge floating confetti.

I used a Yahtzee cup and traced a circle onto a piece of cardboard to use as a template.

I cut 30 circles out of 10 different colors of felt. 
I only used 15 of each color in this garland and plan to use the rest to make two additional shorter garlands.

Taking 2 colors at a time I ran them through the sewing machine one after another,
to make a chain of colorful circles.

I think that is it just so much fun!

On the ends I sewed in a loop of ribbon to make hanging easier.

Glorious happy color.

Bliss.

Confetti Garland.

Now I need to make some more fun birthday decorations and make a birthday box.

I am linking up with these super swell blogs:)

I scrolled back up to see how you cut your circles again...I can't imagine cutting that many circles! That is what holds me back from breaking out the felt right now!!! :)

Andi @ Jane of all crafts said...

First, I am impressed that you cut out all those circles. Second, it's so adorable! Third, the ribbon loop at the end is genius! Making one for our next birthday party!

Oh, I wrote you a big long comment, and then I navigated away. Oh, boo. I love the garland! The colors are so fun and cheerful! I love your blog! I just found it today--I knew I'd like it when I saw your Gilmore Girls quote (especially about coffee).
Anyway, I saw a confetti type scarf on a little music video on Nick Jr. I couldn't find it again, but I wanted to see it again and make it! Now, I have your cute post as my model. Thank you!

Love it! It's so festive and fun. I featured you today on my banner round up :)

Labor intensive, but worth it! Those could be reused for school functions, holidays, etc...

I have an affinity toward all things circle.

Love it!

Thanks for linking up to Creative Juice...
