This year, ditch the store-bought decorations and create your own beautiful Christmas garland. It’s easier than you think, and you’ll end up with a one-of-a-kind decoration that will bring some extra holiday cheer to your home.

To get started, you’ll need:

– Fresh greenery (you can use pine needles, holly, eucalyptus, or whatever else you like)

– Floral wire

– Wire cutters

– A few pieces of ribbon (optional)

how to make christmas garland

1. Start by gathering your greenery and trimming it to the desired length. You’ll want to leave a few extra inches at the end so that you can securely fasten it to the floral wire.

2. Next, take your piece of floral wire and wrap it around the base of your greenery, forming a loop.

3. Continue adding more pieces of greenery to the wire, looping it around each one as you go.

4. Once you’ve reached the desired length, secure the end of the wire by twisting it around itself a few times.

5. If you’re using ribbon, tie it around the garland at intervals, making sure to leave enough slack so that the garland can be hung easily.

6. Hang your garland up and enjoy!

Get a garland or wreath form.

  • These are usually Styrofoam or wire rings that you can find at a craft store.
  • Choose your greenery. You can use just about any type of greenery for this project, but some popular choices include pine needles, holly, eucalyptus, and ivy.
  • Trim the greenery to the desired length. You’ll want to leave a few extra inches at the end so that you can securely fasten it to the garland form.
  • Attach the greenery to the form. Start by wrapping a piece of floral wire around the base of one piece of greenery, then continue adding more pieces of greenery and wrapping the wire around each one as you go.
  • Secure the end of the wire. Once you’ve reached the desired length, twist the wire around itself a few times to secure it in place.
  • Add some ribbon (optional). If you want to add a little extra flair to your garland, tie a few pieces of ribbon at intervals along the length of the garland. Make sure to leave enough slack so that the garland can be hung easily.

Hot glue the greenery in place
