I usually love throwing colors around for Christmas but this year is different. Our family is heading to Finnish Lapland and I’ve been so excited at the prospect of an extra snowy Christmas! It has definitely influenced my creativity because all I want for Christmas is WHITE! If you’re into the Winter Wonderland look this year, give this easy DIY Felt Garland a try!
All you need to craft this garland is white felt and some metallic cord (find it here). Settle down in a comfy chair to cut the felt leaves then move to your worktable with a cup of hot cocoa. Yes to cozy winter crafting!!
PS: this DIY Felt Garland also look nice on a wreath 💚

To make this DIY Felt Garland, you’ll need…

Step 1: Cut small felt leaves
To start, lay the felt fabric down on your worktable and fold it in half. Cut 1 1/2″ (3 to 4cm) leaf shapes into the fabric.
Don’t worry about consistency! It’s actually good to have some variety in the leaves. I purposefully cut some smaller leaves and others much thinner or rounder to add diversity to the garland.
Step 2: Fold and glue onto the cord
Next, cut a few yards of gold cord to provide the body of the garland. Heat your glue gun and apply a line of hot glue on one end of a felt leaf.
Press the end of the leaf against the metallic cord and allow the glue to cool down a little before pinching the leaf. Roll the leaf end between your fingers and move on to the next leaf, about 1 inch (2.5cm) further down the cord.
In between leaves, twist the cord with a 1/4 rotation – otherwise, all your felt leaves will end up on the same side of the garland.
And voila! A few yards of garland will be enough to bring a touch of Winter Wonderland to your Christmas tree 🎄
