I've been slowly working on sewing strands of felt circles together to fill the empty space on the top half of the big playroom wall.
All I did to make this was cut out a bunch of different sized circles from felt and sewed them together in several long chains. I didn't worry about making my circles perfect by using any kind of template. I just free handed my circles with the scissors. I have more details about making this type of garland in this post if you want more instructions. But this is the gist of it. Very easy.
I decided to use felt in the colors found in the "For Like Ever" veil display in the living room:
Mostly whites and grays with blue, pink, and light and dark green sprinkled in. I like when little details like that repeat in rooms to tie things together.
This is one of those things that could be kind of forever a work in progress since there's no official "done" point- it'll just be finished when I feel like it's gotten full enough. And since felt is so cheap I bought a huge stack of it from Michaels and haven't even used half of it yet. So I'll be continuing to add strands till I feel like this wall is sufficiently filled. At the same time I have plans to simplify other walls in here because the more toys and things get added the busier it's feeling in here and I'm finding myself craving a calmer look. Still fun of course, since it's a playroom (hence things like the garland) but also less cluttered looking. I think I've come up with a good plan to gradually accomplish that. So more of that to come.
Now can I just say hallelujah it's the weekend?! Have a great one!
