It’s been very busy and I’m just finally getting around to my next installment of A Very Hexie Christmas. I have a couple more I’m hoping to still get done before Christmas among my growing stack of Christmas gifts I’m making. Mollie from Wild Olive took part and put together an awesome hexie ornament tutorial, so make sure you check that out too!
The garland uses a lot of the same basics as the hexie ornaments, so definitely check out that one too.

EPP hexagons of any size – I used 1″
Felt (My favorite wool blend felt comes from Benzie felt)
Clover Wonder Clips*
Ribbon or twine
Make a variety of EPP hexagons and felt backs. Give the hexie a good press and remove the paper.
Sandwich a piece of twine or ribbon between the fabric and the felt hexies and use the Wonder Clips to keep them in place. Make sure that you give yourself a good tail of string before your first hexie so that you can hang it.
I found the easiest thing to do was to clip together the whole strand and then assemble it all at once. I used a ruler to measure 3″ from the edge of the first hexie and then placed the second. I moved along this way until I was pleased with the length. I also wanted to do them all at once because I changed the stitching thread color for each one, so I wanted to be able to stitch all of each color at the same time.
Machine or hand stitch around the edges of the hexies to attach them to the string. You could use fabric glue but I wanted to stitch mine on.
And there you have it. It’s really simple but definitely a little more time consuming than the hexie ornaments. But totally worth it because hexies make an adorable garland!
Have you been doing any Christmas crafting, hexies or otherwise? I’ve been pretty wrapped up with Christmas presents but it’s been fun to take some breaks to make some decorations!
