Ruffly Felt Valentine Garland

I've decided that there's no reason not to have a garland on my stairs at all times.  I just love the cheerfulness that a garland brings to the underappreciated staircase.  So for Valentine's Day, I stitched up another quick ruffled felt garland.  I used the same quick technique as the candy corn version and last year's rainbow variety.  Here's a cliff notes version of the tutorial:


Ruffle up some loooooong strips of felt




Loosely twist 3 strands together






Pin to the railing (I use pushpins secured to the wooden railing)

You're so right - what reason in the world is there for *not* having garlands up all year round. I love your Valentine's version - so lovely!
