One of my favorite things about being married is that I gained a whole new family along with Zach. And, lucky for me - I adore them.
I acquired two new sisters in the deal, one of whom is currently planning her own wedding. I couldn't be more excited for Kara and Tim - and I'm SUPER excited about their big day. Can I just say, it's going to be incredible? Evening wedding on a hilltop winery in Paso Robles... Um. Yes, please.
Kara and Tim asked me to make a garland for the bride & groom chairs at the reception. So for the past few days, I've been up to my ears in felt. I'll wait to show you the full garland until after the wedding, but today I thought it'd be fun to give a short tutorial on how I'm making some of the flowers.

Then, just do this:
And, felt flowers can be used in numerous craft projects: wreaths, hats, barrettes, broaches... the possibilities are kinda endless.
I'll show you my completed garland next month. But, in the mean time, have you ever made felt flowers? What did you put them on?
