Birthdays for Children – A Felt Star Celebration Garland


I thought I’d share a very sweet and simple little tutorial to inspire a little birthday making. This Felt Star Garland is perfect to decorate the birthday table or maybe as a cake topper.  I love using stars when celebrating birthdays, as they really seem to suit the occasion and work beautifully for all ages.

For more ideas and lots of birthday rituals + rhythms take a look at the  Magical Birthdays for Children E-book.


Materials you will need: 

A piece of wool felt or various scraps in chosen colours

Embroidery thread

Sewing basics – pins, needle + scissors 




I’d love to see what magic you create… share using #magicalbirthdaysforchildren
