Whether you’re looking for a garland to decorate your mantle or your front door, putting one together can be quite daunting. You could go simple, or ornate. The choice depends greatly upon what your decorating style is and what budget you’ve got. Garlands don’t take a lot to put together. It’s possible to deconstruct whatever you see on Pinterest and make it your own. But why do that when I can help? Here are some ideas for making (or buying) a garland to fit your home.
If simple is more your style, and you’ve got littles who want to help, putting together a simple garland is an easy thing to do!
It’s as simple as this:
1 length twine
12-16 fall elements: leaves, acorns, berries, etc
Optional: clothing pins
All you need to do is measure your twine to your preferred length, and alternate your elements along it. Secure with hot glue, and if desired, clothing pins.
