This charming garland is versatile enough to decorate your mantel, Christmas tree, buffet or any room in your home.
Cut and pin together two of each shape from cream felt and two gingerbread men from brown felt. Decorate one stocking with the pen.
Sew the shapes together. Leave the mitten and stocking tops unsewn. Sew on the features and rickrack trim.
Thread a piece of wire through the top of each shape and secure in a loop. Thread the twine through the loops and tie ribbons onto the twine.
Cut strips from the garment for scarves and sew them, adding some decorative ribbons and buttons, onto the fabric shapes.
