How To Make A Real Garland

Christmas, Seasonal & Holiday, Winter

    Great job! I never thought to use the fake stuff ( which I have lots of ) and add in the fresh! I also bought a real tree this year and cut it off to put into a cheese crate that I have. The left over branches are also being put to use. 🙂 Its so fun getting the house dressed for the holidays!

    Clever way to create the garland, Shayna. And it looks wonderful (must also smell great as you pass by it). Happy Holidays, Ardith

    I did the same, added some naked branches also. The cats in my neighbor hood are driving me nuts though, they seem to think it is some kind of ladder. Love the look though. Love your house.

    Do you have a trick as to how I can possibly do the same or similar thing for my split rail fence? It’s so long that it would cost an arm and a leg to buy the prepared fresh garland.

      Hi Dana! I think you *should* be able to do it the same way I’ve done mine. On the top railing, string the fake garland, tying it on with rope every few feet, then purchase a Christmas tree for the clippings. Stuff the clippings into the fake garland, adding more rope to the sections as you go. I hope that helps! 🙂
