Gather your supplies and get ready for some serious llama fun! You can make your llama shapes as large or as small as you would like for your garland. Hand draw it on a piece of scratch paper or print from online and trace and cut out. This will be your template for creating the llamas on felt.
Place your llama template on felt and trace with a pencil. Create as many as you would like for your garland.
Place felt on a cutting mat and use a craft knife to cut out llama shapes.
Repeat process on other colors of felt to create saddles for the llamas. Use Fabric Fusion Felt Adhesive to glue a saddle cutout onto each llama. Let dry.
Cut slightly smaller pieces of felt in the same shape as saddles but different colors for blankets. Glue onto saddles and let dry.
Glue small pompoms randomly onto blanket portions of saddles. Glue mini pompoms along the neck of each llama to create a necklace.
Use an embroidery needle to thread felt balls onto a strand of twine/cording. Thread on two felt balls.
Next poke a hole on each end of the llama and thread onto cording.
Continue threading two felt balls then a llama onto cording until you've created your desired size of garland.
How adorable is this llama garland? What a colorful, fun way to decorate for your next party or simply because you love llamas!
