Mexican Christmas: Sweeten your life with this felt concha garland

How to make felt concha garland – because pastries on a Christmas tree are are sweet addition!

We let our conchas be our guide, right?

From jewelry to plushies, these colorful Mexican pastries were EVERYWHERE. So why not some concha garland for our holiday decor?

You can keep these out all year, I bet they’ll be a fun conversation piece. You can string them over a doorway, across a bookcase shelf, or even take them apart and give out to friends as a sign of everlasting friendship!

Ooooh! how about gluing a pin back to them to make a fun brooch, and then add some rhinestones and trinkets!

Supplies for felt concha garland

You’re going to need:

Tan (chocolate), cream (vanilla), yellow and hot pink felt.

Stuffing or batting.

Scissors, twine or ribbon.

Glue or a needle and thread.

How to make felt concha garland:

Start but cutting the felt into 4″ circles. Stitch or glue the ends of two tan pieces together, stuff, then stitch or glue shut. Then cut the faux dough topping.

Cut small pieces that look as if they belong together and then as if a knife slice them into pieces and they expanded during baking.
