Rico Bauble with Pom Poms

Combine pom poms with traditional decorations to give a branch Christmas tree a woolly twist! Simply collect branches of varying lengths, attach with string, and decorate to your heart's content.

As well as being a lovely decoration, branch Christmas trees are a great space saver, too!

A pom pom wreath will bring festive, woolly fun and colour to your door! We made the pom poms for our wreath in Drops Nepal, with a thread of Drops Glitter for a bit of sparkle.

Felt Garland ....

Felt Wall Hanging

.... Felt Christmas Garland
There are endless options for using felt in Christmas decorations! We used a pack of 10 felt squares in festive colours to make a Christmassy garland and wall hanging. For the garland, we simply cut small circles in various sizes and sewed them together in a continuous line of stitching through the middle. To make the wall hanging, we cut star shapes and again sewed groups of them together with a continuous line of stitching through the middle. We then tied the top of each string of stars to a branch - perfect for a Christmassy wall hanging!
