diy felt gift adornments







in case you missed my post at finding fabulous,
here is my tutorial on how to make cheap and chic 
gift adornments from felt:

 these gift adornments are so versatile---by alternating the felt colors and ribbon, they can be used for birthdays, baby showers, hostess gifts, and of course, christmas.
here is what you will need:
gift boxes
felt
ribbon
something round to trace
scissors,  marker, glue gun
paper or fabric (if you choose to cover your box)
trace your circles onto some felt.
Fold each circle in half and cut two small slits on either side of the center.
this is what you will end up with.
(wow. i really need a manicure. stat.)
start to thread your felt circles onto your ribbon.
(this ribbon was purchased at roberts craft store)
tie the ribbon around a gift box.
you're done!
didn't I tell you it would easy?
and not to mention CUTE.
and cheap.
what a great combination, huh?
here is a variation where I covered the top of the box with scrapbook paper.

and another variation using alternating large and small circles with the same color felt.
happy wrapping friends!

  11. What a different idea! I love the pink and black. I think making them smaller and longer would make a cute garlandfor a small tree. Thank you for showing me how to make my packages different from the pack.
