A Simple Garland

This year my garland is simple. OR simpler than last year. I still love a full, fat lovely garland but for some reason this garland wasn’t packed with the rest of the Christmas stuff so I had early access to it and I realized how much I love it.

It’s just two strands of natural looking plastic garland from Hobby Lobby. Bought a few years ago a half price. I looked this year but I couldn’t find more. I like how real this garland looks with it’s yellowy brown edges.

I made three tiny holes in my mantle {because I’m not afraid of holeyness} and just attached the garland to the tacks.

It was kind of plain so of course, I had to add something to it. I found a few picks of red cherries and berries and just laid them in. Then I tore off a few leaves from a fake branch and stuffed them in as well.

Very simple. Very pretty. Very done.

  1. How can you attach a garland to the mantle without putting nails in the wood?

      There is a product out that Lysa Turkerst talked about and I linked to last year–you could search Lysa in the sidebar search box and find the old post.

  2. I so wish I had a mantle to do this! But, you could do this around doorways and windows, couldn’t you?! Hmmmm, ideas are brewing! Thanks for sharing!

  3. Sadly, the planet is just not best, and you will probably
    encounter cutbacks in the process. With that in your mind, if you
