I love that you all love felt balls as much as I do! After seeing how much you loved the DIY felt ball reindeer garland and the felt ball ornament magnets and drink stirrers, I knew I had to come up with one more felt ball DIY for the holidays. This felt holly garland is just super simple to make and is such a cute addition to a classic red and green holiday dessert table. Read on to find out how to make it (or, if you don’t have time, check to see if we have any already made left in our shop)!
- 12 count – 3 cm red felt balls (I found mine on Etsy but here is an Amazon option)
- Stiff green felt (one 8″ x 10″ sheet should be enough to make 24 holly leaves)
- Hot glue gun
- Green baker’s twine
- Large upholstery needle
For the garland you will want to cut out 24, 2-3″ long holly leaves from the green felt. To make them you can just free hand cut them from the felt as I did or use a Cricut maker and the rotary blade to cut them out of the felt for you. This will give you more uniform leaves.
Once you have your leaves, hot glue them to the red felt ball overlapping them slightly. The last step is to thread your baker’s twine onto your needle and then sew it through the top of the felt balls. You will want to vary the direction of the leaves and sew the twine through different sections of the felt balls onto the garland as shown above.
Once they are all threaded on, tie off the ends into a loop and your garland is ready to hang!
Now isn’t that is cutest little garland ever! And really so easy to make!
