Deck The Halls: DIY Hogwarts Tree Garland

Ornament Week may be over, but that doesn’t mean I’m done with holiday-themed DIY tutorials! Today, I’m showing you how to make a Hogwarts Tree Garland.

Last January, my favorite people joined me on a little trip to Universal Studios in Florida to celebrate my birthday.

Somewhere between swishing wands, sipping butterbeer, and riding roller coasters, I spotted this tree garland for sale. And I think it’s the perfect inspiration for my own DIY garland.

Supplies

I found patches for sale online and picked up felt, ribbon, and sequin trim at the craft store.

Cut Felt

I opted for a triangular shape, large enough to fit the patches.

Apply Patches and Trim

My sequin trim was iron-on, but adhere your trim however you want; glue, sew, etc.

Attach to Ribbon

I laid out all the triangles and arranged them in an order that balanced the colors and patches. I then glued ribbon to the top of each one to make a garland.

Display

Display the garland by wrapping it around your tree or along a pine garland framing a window.
