DIY Christmas Tree Garlands
Honestly, I never met a garland I didn’t like. Some might say I’m obsessed with garlands, and I’m totally okay with that. So you can imagine that this time of year, with cuteness swagging all over the place, I’m really in my element. I seriously am of the belief that with a little paint, glitter, paper, or ribbon, any object can become a cute garland. Here are 3 that prove that very point!
Wedding blogs are one of the best sources for cool garlands these days. I’m in love with the colors of this gemstone-like garland from Ruffled. And you can even reuse this garland come Valentine’s Day! And Easter too while you’re at it!
Stars are not the most original symbol when it comes to Christmas garlands, but this color palate really shakes up the traditional red and green. And guess what? It’s made with free paint chip samples from the hardware store. This is so easy to make with a star paper punch and the kids can really get into it! They can even punch stars as they are re-watching A Charlie Brown Christmas (one of my all time faves). How-to found here.
Here is a classic pasta craft that really feels festive and celebratory! Cover bowties with gold glitter, let dry, then tie a string around the centers to hang. If there’s anytime to allow glitter into your home, it’s Christmas! You can also see a red on at The Gold Jellybean.
