I love using up every last scrap of fabric. This tutorial will show you a very quick and easy way to make a sweet piece of tinsel that you can make from all of those lovely pieces of felt that you just can’t bear to part with. It can be scaled up or down in size, depending on the felt that you have available and what you want to use your finished tinsel for.
All you need to make your tinsel is small pieces of felt, some thread, a needle, a pair of scissors and some small beads. The felt can be any shape, I like to use pieces that have angular edges so that the finished tinsel has good texture.
Unwind a long piece of the thread, twice as long as you want your finished tinsel to be. Thread your bead halfway down the thread and knot it into place with a double knot.
By varying the colours and size of the felt you can make a variety of tinsels for every occasion!
