Add some whimsy and color to your home with this vintage-themed garland! Seven sweetly illustrated and colorful animals hang from a length of yellow vintage trim along with six flower illustrations.

I cut the illustrations from a roll of fabulous vintage wallpaper. I mounted the wallpaper pieces on dark green eco-felt (vegan) and sealed them with a shiny and slightly textured sealant (I like this sealant because you can see some brush strokes). I then neatly hand stitched each piece onto a length of vintage yellow loop trim using green embroidery cotton.

From left to right the garland features: rabbit; flower; puppy dog; flower; lion; flower; donkey; flower; kitty cat; flower; bird; flower; zebra.

This garland is 56" long; the yellow trim band is 9/16" wide; the yarn loops are each about 1.5" long; and the largest animal measures about 5" at the widest and 5" at the tallest.

I did not sew on additional loops to this garland, with the intent that the end loops on the trim be used for hanging. However, if you would like me to sew on embroidery cotton loops for hanging, or metal split rings, let me know and I would be happy to do that for you.

This garland is very sturdy and will not fall apart or crumble under everyday use. It also is tangle resistant and I will pack it securely for shipping so that it arrives ready to hang.

I avoid buying plastic as much as possible (so no plastic sleeves for packaging!), and I love fabric, so your garland will be sent wrapped in a piece of lovely fabric (perhaps vintage, perhaps lace, who knows!) secured with little safety pins, and tied with pretty ribbon.

I'm always on the lookout for unique vintage finds, and when I found the vintage wallpaper that was the inspiration for this garland, it made my entire week! The wallpaper has the most darling illustrations of brightly colored animals dotted with flowers. I imagine the paper was intended for a nursery, however I made these garlands with the intent that they be used to cheer up any space!

Made in an entirely smoke free home. I will wrap this securely and will send with delivery confirmation.

If you have any questions or would like to see more pictures let me know!
