How to Make Your Own Fancy DIY Garland

Brighten up your holiday and deck your halls by making your own fancy DIY garland from plain green garland. 

 

I LOVE to “deck the halls”, especially with garland, and this year we took it a step further and made a beautiful DIY fancy garland using the cheaper plain stuff. We used what we had and didn’t have to buy a thing! We normally decorate for Christmas the weekend after Thanksgiving. However, the past few years seemed to have gone by double time and it seemed as if we just decorated and then it was time to take it down again. So this year a new tradition starts and we’re decorating in mid-November! For LOTS more crazy inexpensive unique Christmas ideas make sure to check out our entire Christmas Category!
