Felt Christmas Tree Garland

Last year, I felt like our Christmas tree was missing something. It was filled with lights and ornaments but still did not feel full. It needed a garland and instead of making the tradition paper chains, I decided to make one out of felt so that we could reuse it year after year.

I cut colorful 1 inch by 6 inch strips…

 and glued the ends together with hot glue in rainbow order.

I made three separate strands so that it would be easier to work around the tree. (Actually I only string it 3/4 around the front. Shhh!) Between holidays, I use an embroidery hoop to store it and keep it from getting tangled.

Now, our tree now feels complete!

  1. Your tree is beautiful, Mel. I’d expect nothing less. Okay, here’s a question: I feel like whenever I make anything out of felt, I spend a FORTUNE. Any tips for buying it on the cheap (or cheaper, at least)?

    1. Really? Honestly, I do not buy the wool felt. I only buy the sheets that are about 50 cents a piece for my home decor items. For the Baymax costume, I did use wool felt for the red portions but that was it. Everything I make takes very little felt, so maybe that is why I don’t feel the $$$ effects.

      1. That’s been my problem I think. At Michael’s, etc all they ever seem to have is the wool felt so I usually suck it up and buy it. I’ll start buying the sheets online.

    I’m starting to get in the Christmas spirit, and this piece from my friend Mel over at A Peace of Creativity sure helps. Check out her post about making beautiful and easy garland for your tree. Fun for the kiddos too!
