It FELT A Lot Like Christmas!

Do you like that pun in the title? Because this is a felt garland?? Get ready for a lot of that type of comedic gold, my lovelies!

These little sheets of felt are quickly becoming my favorite craft supply--they are only 34 cents each and I only used two full sheets for this whole garland. This glitter glue has lasted me through a lot of hard times and crafty adventures, and comes in a close second on the "Favorite Craft Supply" list.

I cut a whole bunch of different Christmas-yshapes from the felt, and embellished with the gold glitter. I made holly leaves and berries, Christmas trees, ornament shapes, and used little red pom-poms that I had on hand from a previous ill-advised project.

Once the glitter had dried, I threaded the pieces using an embroidery needle and red yarn, then hung it on up! This is really my kind of decorating, because I'm not wild about the bright green and red, store-bought Christmas look. I much prefer the handmade look, and I think this fits the bill perfectly! Are you making any of your own decorations this year? I'd love to hear about them in the comments!


  1. Hooray for crafty Christmas stuff! Love the cute (and oh so inexpensive) garland. I'm going to send you a picture of my favorite handmade wreath that adorns our place every year. XXXXX

  2. I absolutely love this! Cute, and seems like a great craft to keep hands busy during my favorite TV shows- perfect! This year, I'm going to try my hand at a homemade topper for a rosemary Christmas tree. Stay close to your phone- I may need some help!

  3. Grandma, I will be looking out for the picture! I have been trying to find a cute wreath to make, so you just might inspire me!

  4. I am going to make this for my mantel or maybe bunting.....
