Introduction: DIY Christmas Garland

This DIY Christmas Garland is a great way to add a bit of festive colour to your bedroom/house. It's really easy to make and can be completed in an afternoon.

Step 1: Materials

  • red and green
  • felt
  • twine
  • ribbons
  • thread and needle
  • sequins/ beads (optional)

Step 2: Cut Out Shapes

Cut out as many felt shapes as you think you'll need for your garland. I chose heart and Christmas tree shapes as they were both simple and festive! I also cut out smaller shapes of different coloured felt and sewed them on top of the larger shapes.

Step 3: Decorate

Decorate the felt shapes with sequins and beads. You can sew around the edges of each shape for added decoration.

Step 4: Attach Ribbons

Form a loop with each ribbon and stitch them onto the top of each felt shape.

Step 5: String Shapes Onto the Twine

Cut a long piece of twine and string it through the ribbon loops on each felt shape.

Step 6: Hang It Up!

Hang up the garland so everyone can admire you're work!
