One of our felt rolls will make a garland just over 4 yards long.

If you choose to pick your own colors from our felt sheets, each sheet will make about 4 feet of garland.

Cut the Felt

Cut the strips in the rolls or the felt sheets into 2” squares. This can be done by hand with scissors or with a rotary cutter, ruler, and mat.

Sewing

Using your sewing machine, feed the circles in, one after the other, with the edges of the circles right up against each other them if you want them touching in the garland.

If hand sewing, use a running stitch and make a little backstitch at the beginning and end of each circle to avoid bunching.

Decorating

Fold the garland and hang it so that it has multiple strands that fall next to each other. Or, drape one or multiple strands between two points in your room.
