  2. Hot-glue two 8-inch-by-11-inch sheets of felt together in each color. (Doubling up the felt allows for thicker letters that won’t curl up when they’re hung.)
  3. Tape the letter templates to the felt sheets, and cut out the letters. If you’re making two letters the same color, you can fit both templates on one felt sheet.
  4. Cut clear plastic drinking straws into 1-inch pieces, and hot-glue them to the top edges of the back of the letters, making sure the straws are not visible from the front.
  5. Starting with the letter M, string mini tinsel garland through the straws for hanging.
