stitched winter icon garland

This project is intended for kids ages 6+.

Step 1

First, click here to download and print the templates; then cut out the patterns.
TIP: The templates for all projects in 2022's Winter Workshop are included in this link. Either print just the page needed or print them all at once so you are ready for each project in the workshop!

Step 2

Trace the patterns onto craft foam sheets. Cut out the shapes and set aside.

Step 3

Use scissors to cut about eight chenille pipe cleaners in half.

Step 4

Twist the ends of one of the cut chenille pipe cleaner together to create a circle. Thread a second cut chenille pipe cleaner through the circle and twist the ends together to link the two circles. Continue linking all your cut chenille pipe cleaners to make a long chain.
TIP: Add a few pony beads to some of the links before twisting them, if desired.

Step 5

Thread a plastic beading needle with the embroidery floss. Poke the beading needle through the back-side of one of your foam shape cut-outs and thread it through the hole until the end of the embroidery floss it almost to the end. Tie a knot on the back-side of your craft foam shape to hold the embroidery floss in place. Stitch a design of choice onto the cut craft foam shape. Once done with design, tie a knot with the end of the floss on the back of the shape.

Step 6

Repeat Step 5 on the other two shapes.

Step 7

Glue a pom-pom to the top of the hat.

Step 8

Poke a hole with the beading needle at the top of each shape, thread a small piece of chenille pipe cleaner through the hole and link it to the garland.
