I found this felt with a sticky back at Joanne's.  I got one of those circle punch things (I think it's the 1 inch one) and tried to cut the circles out of the felt but it was really thick so I had to step on it.  After I got into a groove it was really easy to cut the circles out.  Then I peeled off the backing and stuck circles of the same color together with silver embroidery thread between them.  I did this every few inches and Voila! A garland!  Beware though, pay close attention to what you're doing or the whole thing will get tangled and you'll spend forever trying to untangle it and end up getting mad at it and cutting it.  Cheesy

Very cute idear! I saw that stuff at Walmart today and was trying to think of the things a person could do with it - well you definitely answered my question!  I think I might try the idea but attach strands to small nails above one of my doors - felt dot curtain! Thanks for the inspiration!

I remember Fred Flare doing something like that... They don't sell it anymore but here is a pic : http://www.fredflare.com/press/img/one.jpg

Can you believe they wanted $15 for it?

Kudos to you for your creativity  Grin

they did that in the better homes and gardens "kids rooms" issue thats out now. cept theirs were way bigger and they just used one layer of regular felt and used invisible thread. taking one stitch at each end of the circle. they put them on a tention rod and put them in the window over sheers. too pretty.
