I think I used two strands of garland on my pastoral cow painting in my sitting room above. I didn’t use anything to hang it. I just tucked pieces of it behind the picture to get it to stay in place.
Christmas garland doesn’t have to be made of evergreens. One year I made a wood slice garland and paired it with a velvety strand of faux greenery. In that post I share how to make one – it’s really pretty easy and doesn’t take much time.
On occasion, I mix two different types of garland for a thicker and more textured look. On my mantel below, I paired a more expensive piece with a cheaper one.
A glittery pine cone garland with candy cane ribbon is one of my favorite Christmas crafts I’ve ever made. Gather pine cones from the forest or your yard and brush them with glue. Then sprinkle glitter all over. I used a hot glue gun to attach the pine cones to the ribbon. It’s a little messy with the glitter, but it’s so economical.
A pom pom garland is another festive garland you can make. I shared a pom pom tutorial a few years ago. It’s a little more time consuming but yarn isn’t expensive so it’s a nice holiday option.
Here’s a garland option for those of you who love felted ornaments. It’s a wool felt snowflake garland! So cute!! Use it alone or layer it with evergreen garland.
