What you will Need: How to Make a Felt Garland using Cricut
- SVG you can get by clicking on this link
- Green, Tan and Brown felt
- cording or twine
- Cricut Maker
- Rotary blade if using Cricut
- Hot Glue
Step 1: Cut out the Fabrics
Choose whether you would like to cut out the pattern pieces by hand or on your Cricut. If you would like to use your Cricut upload the SVG file following the below video and cut out in the usual way making sure to choose the right material in the cut screen and use the pink cutting mat. You will also need a rotary cutting blade. Switch to the rotary blade from the fine point blade.
Step 2: Add a Hole to the Stem of the Acorn Top
Use the shapes icon on the left menu bar and chose the circle. Resize the circle and place it in the center. Highlight both the circle and the acorn top and click slice in the lower right layer menu. Remove the circles and you will see a hole in your stem for the twine. Keep the circles for now but hide them. You will use the circles to cut a hole in the back piece in the same location.
Step 3: Glue the Top to the Bottom
Glue the cap of the acorn to the bottom of the acorn overlapping the pieces by about 1/4″.
Step 4: Glue the Back to the Front
Place the back and the front together so they are back to back. Glue them together.
Step 5: Glue on the Leaves
Glue on the felt leaves to the top of the acorn. I glued just the tops of my leaves to the top of my acorn so that the leaves were hanging loose.
Step 6: Add the Twine
Once you have created eight Acorns string them together with cording or twine wrapping the cording or twine around the hole before moving onto the next acorn. Attach your garland and you are finished with your felt garland using Cricut.
