Easy No-Sew Felt Peppermint Garland

Standard

I fell in love with this Christmas garland, adapted from an idea in Fa la la la Felt by Kathy Sheldon. Here are the steps:

(1) Cut red and white felt into strips. Mine are 1/2 inch x 8 inches.

(2) Lay a white strip over a red strip, then pull the white strip down about an inch. Begin rolling upward at the end you pulled down. This will give the “candy” a solid white center and a red outer layer.

(3) After the piece is rolled, put a pin through it to hold everything in place until you string the candies.

(4) Using a sturdy needle and extra-strength thread, poke the needle through the loose end of a candy, go through the middle of the candy and out the middle of the opposite side, and remove the pin. Pull the candies close together to keep the rolls tight.

(5) Hang your garland on the mantel, in a doorway or window, or on a Christmas tree or wreath! ♥

    • I said the same thing when I saw the idea! :) Luckily I already had red and white felt scraps, so I was good to go! :) Can’t wait to see yours! P.S. The ones in the book had beads between the candies . . . that was super-cute, too!

  1. This would be perfect on my tree. I’ve had just red and white decorations for several years now. I love how it looks so Scandinavian. Speaks to my Minnesotan roots. Might have to try this. Thanks for sharing all of your good ideas!

  6. Adorable, and I can’t believe how easy this is. I love red & white at Christmas, and I’m printing this out so I remember. So hoping I have time to make this one of these years . . . Thank you, Kathy.
