A felt garland

I am hosting a shower at my place and I wanted to make things look a bit more festive.  In fact, I've always wanted to have something I could pull out for parties and get togethers to make my apartment more festive so I decided to make this.  I bought a stack of a variety of colors of wool felt on Etsy and I have found so many great things to do with it, I LOVE FELT!!!  Anyway, it was super easy and you could do it in any color combination you'd like for any occasion.  You could probably do a number of different shapes as well... anywho, here's how its done...
First off I purchased bakers twine from Amazon, but you can get it on Etsy too and I'm sure a number of other places.  I like Bakers twine because its cuter than normal string...
Next I started to get circles out of my felt... no need for a perfect circle, I just cut them haphazardly and slightly different sizes, I think it looks cuter and more eclectic that way.  I then laid out the colors in the pattern I preferred and then I heated up the ole glue gun and put thin strips of glue down the back of each circle and slapped on the string and TADA... a garland was born.  Super easy, super fun, and super cute... at least I think so...
