First, choose your colors and group then together. We love these felt garlands for Christmas, but you could change the colors to make them usable all year!  Then, arrange the felt balls in the order you would like them to appear on the garland.

Thread the embroidery floss through the eye of the needle and begin stringing the felt balls onto the floss using the needle.
