A few weeks ago, I was visiting my one of my favorite local home stores in my area and came across a lovely holiday garland made out of Christmas ornaments! I was instantly inspired to recreate a similar approach to this holiday must have, after seeing the price tag. I mean who doesn’t love a good garland? While I definitely loved the one in the store, this one is even better because it’s homemade, gold and white, and is only $10! I have been beyond obsessed with the Target x Sugar Paper LA Holiday collection and the ribbon and ornaments I used are from [but I will be linking some of my other favorites below].
This garland is beyond easy to make, it only took me a matter of a few minutes to put it together, so naturally I had to share it with you! You can also use different ribbon and different ornaments to recreate your own version! I used little ball ornaments, that way I was able to hang the garland on my mirror. But, if you used large ornaments, this would be perfect for your fireplace mantle!
What you will need
Ribbon of your choice
Holiday Ornaments [preferably balls]
To make things easier, I like to measure my ribbon by where I am hanging it. I’m sure there is a technical way to do this. But, I simply just held up my ribbon, leaving enough room on each side to secure it, and draped it to the height that I like. Using whatever christmas balls you would like, slide them onto the ribbon using the attachment at the top of the ornament. This is my favorite part because it’s so easy! Once all of your ornaments are on the string, you can adjust the placing of your ornaments. I prefer for mine to be evenly spaced, but it doesn’t have to be perfect, that’s what makes it special! To hang your ribbon, I recommend using Command Strips. They are amazing and my family uses them all of over house, especially during the holidays! From hanging wreaths, garland, lights and more, Command Strips are easy to use and are very strong, so I would recommend hang your holiday garland with them! After you attach your Command Strips to whatever your are hanging your wreath on [mirror, door, mantle, etc.,] snip a small hole in your ribbon with scissors and slide each slide of the ribbon onto the Command Strip.
I hope that you enjoy this little DIY Garland! Like I have said before, I am not very crafty, so if I can do this… you can do this!! This is also a very inexpensive craft and easy to do, so I hope you try this out! I have many exciting posts planned for the upcoming weeks during the holiday season, that I am so excited to share with you. As always, if you have an requests or questions please let me know!
