Baby Onesie Garland


We’re expecting another grandchild this spring, so I created this mini-garland to decorate the nursery. It’s a girl for us, but you can easily create a similar garland in blue for a boy with a little bow tie in ribbon instead of the tutu.

You’ll need:

- JOY embroidered letters

- Stiffened felt

- Tulle trim or lace in bright pink

- Tiny clothespins

- Baker’s twine

- Craft paint, paintbrush

- Tacky glue

- Scissors, needle and thread


To create a similar onesie pattern, fold a quarter of a sheet of paper in half lengthwise. Follow the picture to draw your pattern.

 

Cut out your pattern, trace four on the felt and cut out. You can also find onesie patterns online.

Glue or iron on the letters.

Cut a piece of trim to wrap around the onesie and tack together at the back with the needle and thread. Add glue at the back to hold if needed.

Paint the clothespins.

Clip the onesies to a length of baker’s twine with the clothespins.

JOY Embroidered letters can be found at your local craft stores in a variety of sizes, colors, simple and decorative fonts.
