Felted Bead Garland – Mantel Pt. 2

I’ve seen these amazing garlands all over lately, like at Anthropologie and West Elm, but they came in colors I didn’t love for my home, and were much pricier than I wanted to spend on such a small accent. So I decided to make my own and it was so simple. All you need are 2cm felted balls (or larger if you prefer), a needle and some thread or bakers twine. I got my twine in the dollar bin at Target, how great and addictive is that section by the way?! Simply thread the needle, and string on the beads by puncturing them right through the center. If your kids are old enough to handle a needle, this would be a fun family craft as well.


This project only took about 10 minutes to do and I love the small amount of holiday cheer it brings to our decor. I bought 100 because I had no idea how many I was going to want/need, but this strand for my mantel only took about 30 to complete. Depending on how spaced out or close together you want yours, you can order fewer or more.

I found mine on Etsy because it allowed me to mix and match colors and buy in bulk as I wanted, but they came from Poland and took about 2 weeks to arrive. So if you want some a bit quicker, they also have great options on amazon:
