Do you choose a color scheme for Christmas? It can sometimes help the decor from feeling overwhelming and cluttered. This year, we are enjoying silver and blue decorations — but I love gold and white, too!

MONDAY’S PRETTY THINGS :: Decorating for Christmas with Felted Balls

Felted garlands are a great way to add color to your Christmas decor in a non-traditional way (i.e., not strictly red+green). Of course, I’d easily be able to justify leaving the strands up long after December is over. You can purchase both loose spheres and ready-made strands at craft stores and via private sellers on Etsy, or, you can felt your own wool using directions from one of these DIYs below! I really like the all-white ones strung on the neon thread! Which is your favorite?
