1. "Sweet" garland
On New Year the whole house is filled with sweets. Therefore, they may well be considered a symbol of this holiday. This garland, although it seems to be quite edible, is actually made of colored felt.
To begin, cut the felt into strips of the same width. You can buy a felt fabric in a shop for creativity, or use any other thick fabric, such as colored wool or felt, for crafts. Traditionally, candy is made red and white. But you can combine other colors. It looks great combination of white with any other bright color. It is more convenient to cut the felt not with scissors, but with a stationery knife.
Smear the colored strip with white glue and place the white on top. Apply another layer of glue and roll the lollipop into a roll. Now it remains to make as many links of the garland as you need for the length you have chosen.
To complement the jewelry, pick up the beads of a suitable color. Transparent plastic or glass that resembles real candy can be best.

3. Wreath or garland of burlap
A Christmas tree decorated in ethnic style has been relevant for several seasons. This design looks very comfortable and natural. All that is needed is a long piece of burlap (or several short stitched together) and threads of suitable color.
For this garland used a whole canvas bag. He was cut into strips 10 centimeters wide each. If you have a small tree, the strips can be done already.
Sew all the strips together to make a long ribbon. You can seam on the machine, or manually. Since the garland is sewn in a rustic style, uneven seams and even slight negligence are allowed. For sacking, the seam is best suited for zigzagging, but you can get by with straight lines. You can process the edges of the garland on the overlock or simply grease them with white glue.
It remains only to collect a garland, passing a thick thread in the middle of the ribbon. Use the largest needle for work.
Assemble the thread and secure the knot at the end. Decoration is ready!

Such a decoration will look great even if it is made of soft felt, and if you use colored shreds of fabric as a material. The main thing is to choose a material for denser. Technology creation is nowhere easier. Cut a lot of identical thin strips, and tie a knot in the middle of each of them. Then thread all the bows on the dental floss or thin wire.

To create pompoms, you need two thick rings of cardboard. The diameter of the ring must match the diameter of the pom-pom. The inner hole should be small so that a small ball can fit into it. Wind the ring with thread, passing the ball through the hole. When the entire ring is covered with threads, cut the threads along the outer edge so as to separate the two paper rings. Draw a thread between the cardboard layers, and tie a pom-pom in the middle. Remove the cardboard and give the pompon a round shape.
Collect all bows on a string and hang a garland in the chosen place.
