Directions: 1) Using your straight edge create your isosceles triangle on card stock and cut it out. The base of mine is 3″. 2) Using your card stock template, cut your triangles out of your wool felt. I did 12 black and 11 white. 3) Line up your triangles with every other one the opposite color and pointing the opposite direction from the previous. Stack in the order they are lined up. Take your twine and zig zag stitch it onto the top of the garland. Cut another piece of twine the same length as the top and then repeat the zig zag stitch on the bottom of the garland. Some tips of the triangle may need a backstitch to secure onto the garland. I placed each of my triangles about 1.5″ from each other.

I love the contrasting color and the simple geometric design. It also looks cute hung vertically. If you want more color, I think this would be cute in a bright pink and yellow or a turquoise and mustard. Really, the possibilities are endless! Simple and striking projects are always right up my alley.
