Red White and Green Christmas Tree Felt Garland

Today I have an easy and inexpensive project to help you decorate your Christmas Tree-

A red, white and green felt Christmas Tree Garland

I looked for ages to find the perfect colorful Christmas Tree Garland to go on my tree, but could not find one that I liked that was in my budget.

Well of course, since I'm a crafter, I decided I could make one myself.

Felt Christmas Tree Garland, felt sheets


I bought 12 felt sheets from the craft store.

I stacked 2 pieces together and cut them into 1 inch by 3 inch pieces using a rotary cutter, ruler and cutting mat.

It worked best to stack 2 different colors together.  It made it much easier to grab them for the next step.




Those 12 sheets cut up made piles and piles of felt strips.




I stacked 3 various colors together and sewed them with my sewing machine.  I like the hand made look so the stacks were sloppy and mismatched.




12 sheets of felt sewn together made about a 22 foot garland.




That's 22 feet of colorful Christmas Tree goodness for $3.




The colors are so easily customized to fit any decor theme!
