I began by cutting out felt leaves. I googled leaf templates and picked one I liked.
I decided how far I wanted them glued and marked the two distances on a plate.
You can google felt leaf garlands to get several ideas. Most showed the leaves closer together than I placed mine, but that wasn't the look I was after.
It's always helpful to have someone around to help.
I had wanted to use orange yarn and I found some at Goodwill, but I've hidden it from myself so I opted to use twine I already owned.
And here is the finished project.
And how it looks from my chair without the lights on.
I love it. Josey loves it too, so I doubt I'll leave it hanging all the time.
