Felt Garlands are a quick, easy and affordable craft that anyone can do. I have recently gone a little felt garland crazy and I wanted to share this project with all of you so that you can make your own and enjoy them too!

What you'll need:

  • A few 12x9 sheets of felt (I usually choose 3 colors but that's up to you)
  • A cut out of the size or sizes you would like your circles to be for tracing. You can make all your circles the same size or vary the sizes.
  • scissors
  • A sewing machine
  • Thread- I use heavy duty thread


Trace your stencil onto the felt

    Cut out the circles

    Sew them together one by one making sure that the circles are close together in a pattern. Make sure you secure the start and end by stitching back and forth several times.

    If you would like to hang your garland you can add ribbon to each side. Or you can leave it as is and decorate your tree, mantle, hallway or any other place!

    Experiment with different color combinations for different occasions.  Raising Green Kids offers finished garlands in a variety of color combinations for sale in her Etsy shop if you would rather buy one than make it yourself.
