DIY Felt Christmas Tree Garland

The holiday season is officially here! I love decorating my home for Christmas. The only caveat, is that I don’t like to do the same theme/color palette year to year. This is a nightmare for my financial advisor hubby ;).

This year, I decided to I wanted to decorate with navy, white, gray, and copper. I love this wintery color combo! Unfortunately, I only had a few silver and white decor items from years past. In order to save some money I decided some DIY projects were necessary. In the next several days I will be sharing a few DIY decor projects I am using in my home this Christmas. First up is the DIY felt garland for our Christmas tree.

Supplies Needed:

  • Felt in color(s) of choice. I kept my color scheme neutral (white, oatmeal, and gray)
  • Bind wire or twine
  • Scissors (sharp enough to cut fabric)

Step 1: Cut your felt into 1/2″ x 5″ strips and cut your bind wire to desired length (You may want to cut a few pieces in equal lengths.)

Step 2: Next, tie your strips of felt onto the bind wire.

Step 3: Pull pieces of felt together and turn in different directions to create fullness and dimension. Continue until you have covered the bind wire.

My name is Kim, I’m a Portland native and the owner and designer of Swoon Floral Design. Being creative has always been a significant part of my life. From a young age I was always looking for something to design, repurpose, and create. With a background in interior design and horticulture, Swoon allows me to combine my passion for flowers and foliage, color, texture, and fabulous spaces by creating one of a kind arrangements for some of the most beautiful events in Oregon. Whether you are drawn to lush garden style arrangements or simple blooms in eclectic bottles, I will ensure each creation reflects your unique style + aesthetic. I work closely with my clients, making sure their wedding or event is the most cherished of occasions. When not playing with beautiful blooms, you can find me spending time with my family and friends, on a hike, checking out local farmers markets, and exploring the Portland "foodie" scene.
