I’m not sure what it is about the holidays, but something in the air makes us want to hang pretty stuff on everything. Mantles are adorned with evergreen branches, banisters are festooned with ribbons and bows, and eaves are accentuated with stands of twinkling lights. Maybe this desire to ‘deck the halls’ comes from our need to express the holiday spirit, maybe it’s just the pang of tradition, or maybe we think this special time of year should look as magical as it feels. I’m not really sure, but what I do know is that stringing festive cheer all over can be expensive! So, here are some DIY garland tips that will let you fill your home with holiday cheer, but won’t empty your bank account! And, most of these garlands are easy-peasy to make, so invite your friends, make some festive cocktails, and have a DIY craft party!
Make your yuletide gorgeous with Popcorn, Pinecones, Paper Lanterns, Printed Fabric and more! Keep reading…

Do you have a holiday garland idea? Let us know!

The garland you had pictured (the one of the cupcake liners) looked like sea shells. And with that in mind, if you have sea shells that have holes in them, string them up! My mom loves having sea shells and sand dollars hanging on her tree!
Molly, this post is amazing! It must have taken you all day to write this! 🙂
For real though, these are really cool, creative ideas! Love the fabric garland from Scattering Lupines, but the pine cone garland is so festive and fun. Now I have a weekend project to plan!
can anyone tell me how to make the garland pictured with the hearts? the website didn’t work.
those ideas are really cool ill hav tot ry them on my house
love this! i hang garland like those hearts year around!
I love the pine cone garland! What an ingenious idea to use twist screws to attach the cones to the ribbon!
The Heart garland came from EvaForeva.blogspot – here’s a link!
Hope that works,
I’m so going to try one of these, maybe the cupcake liner, this weekend! You could also use the liners from boxes of chocolates. Yum
I actually made my own pine cone garland a few weeks ago with satin white ribbon just tied around the tops of the cones, and it’s draped along the tops of my windows. =) I also made mini ones to hang from the posts at the end of the stairway railings. They’re so beautiful and I don’t know how I’m ever going to take them down!
