Cost of Wool Felt Ball Garland

Real wool felt ball garland can be sooooo pricy. Depending on amount of feet, the real stuff can cost upwards of $10-$30 for 9 feet. That adds up fast when wrapping around or draping on a Christmas tree!

DIY Faux Felt Ball Garland

You can always make your own DIY wool felt ball garland using with these balls here, but even that gets expensive. What to use instead of balls of wool felt to save money? I figured out a way to make 21 feet of faux felt ball garland for less than $7.

These pompoms look so much like wool felt and at over half the cost they are the perfect deal. Plus, at 1 inch they are a great size for making ball garland. The colorful pompoms are my favorite new way to make Christmas garland. Also can be used to make garland for birthdays and other holidays!

What you’ll need:

That’s all you need. No needle and thread required. I love how perfectly the pompoms adhere together with hot glue and there’s no need to worry about string showing in different lengths between each ball. 

As stated above, I absolutely love these pompoms for this craft. They are the closest thing to wool felt that I’ve found. Without the cost of wool felt of course. 1 inch in size and perfect for making Christmas garland. 


What you’ll do:

Step 1:  Lay out the pompoms. Do this in the color pattern that you’d like to follow. This will make it easier to not mess up the pattern by getting out of order.

Step 2:  Glue pompoms together one at a time using hot glue. I wouldn’t recommend other types of glue as it won’t adhere as well to the fibers of the pompoms. Hot glue works perfectly.

Step 3: Put two pompoms together with hot glue. Just be sure to use a small dot of hot glue so when you press the pompoms together the glue doesn’t spill out on the sides. It will help to prevent burning your fingers, too! Repeat adding more and more pompoms until desired length is reached.

Step 6:  Wrap around or drape on your Christmas tree. Be sure to make extra long garland if you’d like to wrap around the entire tree.
