If you are looking for a simple holiday decor crafting project, you have come to the right place! All you need is some felt, a trusty hot glue gun and scissors for this beautiful DIY Holiday Felt Garland.

This felt garland resembles magnolia leaves. We used a pretty moss green color felt that is the perfect holiday shade of green. It goes so well with fresh greenery and faux.

You can hang this garland on window sills or use on a mantel. How pretty would this look on a staircase bannister?

I am tempted to add some felt wool balls for a touch of red or cranberry color. This felt garland will last for years! I have already ordered more felt to make another garland! UPDATE – I made a new one this year and added wool felt balls and am in love with the look!

How to make a DIY Holiday Felt Garland 

Make a pattern by drawing a simple magnolia leaf pattern. I made a 3.5 inch leaf pattern out of card stock paper. You can make the template as large or small as you like. Then start cutting the leaves! 

Add a spot of glue to the bottom center of the leaf and press together and hold. Allow to dry for 15 seconds. You are essentially pinching the bottom to give the felt some dimension.

Connect the leaves together by adding glue to the back of one leaf and attaching to the other. Again, hold the two pieces of felt together for 15 seconds to allow the glue to hold. Continue making and connecting leaves together until you have made the length of garland desired.

    How much felt did you buy and how long is the garland piece

      hi there – you can get 8 leaves per piece of felt. The leaves are about 3 inches long when glued together. So you can get 24 inches go garland per felt sheet.
