  • twine
  • felt (two or more colors)
  • scissors
  • ruler or measuring tape



  1. Cut a piece of twine (as long as you want the garland to be).
  2. Knot one end of the twine.
  3. Cut strips of felt that measure about 5 inches long by ¾-inch wide.
  4. Starting from the knotted end of the twine, tie a strip of felt to the twine and secure using a single knot.
  5. Repeat, alternating colors and adjusting the position of the pieces of felt so that they don’t directly overlap. Continue until desired length is reached.
