Decorating With Garland

I've found that garland is a cheap and easy way to decorate for the holidays.
 I got my garland at Michaels for 50% off, so it came to about $8.00.  
With one garland I was able to make:
A little wreath...
I just cut the length I needed and used a twist tie to secure it into the shape of a wreath and hung it with a striped ribbon.  It worked perfect for the chalkboard in my KITCHEN.

A swag for my entryway...
I cut two pieces the same size length and twisted it with a tie at the top and added a ribbon.
Decorations for my baskets...
I cut these smaller pieces and used metal twine from the dollar store to secure them to the baskets.

I also used one more garland to decorate my TREE...
A garland cut into smaller pieces goes a long way on your tree.

I even had some left to decorate my clock ...

I also added some greenery to my lanterns on our MANTLE...
This is a great time to purchase your garlands for next year because a lot of them start to go on clearance. 
It's amazing how many different items you can make with one strand of garland.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas!!


  1. Beautifull accent. U have a great taste! I love your house:-)

  3. I hope you had a fun Christmas. I have family in Utah and they sent me pictures of the beautiful snow. A white lucky! I was jealous. Garland is a good idea to use for so many decor options...I think I will cut mine up next year. Good idea. Happy New Year..
