I just love this Christmas Cookie felt garland! It’s so cute and whimsical and perfect for decorating a kids room or space.
So today…. I’ve made my own version and am sharing it with all of you! I really love the finished garland and I am LOVING the twine look for my Christmas decor this year.
Christmas Cookie Felt Garland –
First, you can find the cookie templates HERE. I used three different methods (one for each cookie) but you could make all with the same method… find what works best for you and what is easiest for you.
(oh and side note… I don’t love the pictures… it has literally been raining for weeks here in Hong Kong, so my house is always dark!)
I’ll take you step-by-step through each cookie and then give variations if you would like…
First up: the Hand-Sewn Christmas Cookie
start by cutting out the cookie (x2 for each) and icing. Hand sew on the beads for sprinkles (I love this detail!) you could also glue them. I also put a few stitches around the outside of the frosting (you could machine sew this) After you have your cookie “decorated”, sew around the edge, stuff and close the hole, inserting your hanging loop. With the exception of the beads this could all be machine sewed. I think it would also look cute just using sticky felt and not stuffing it.
Second Cookie: Gingerbread Men
You could also use the sticky felt for an entirely no-sew version of these candies.
Putting it all together:
Now if I could only decide where to hang it….
*note* I ended up giving it away in a drawing during my annual cookie exchange. It was the perfect cookie gift!
And now for a garland with a bit more BLING! (and a lot more ease)
I hung these in my craft/office space to liven it up. This is the top of my work space… now… in the midst of my busy crafting season here is the rest of the room…my little honesty moment for the day…
