Guys, I like garlands a lot. Greenery garlands in particular seem to be the thing I can’t get sick of this season, so I’ve got one more very simple one to share with you for your holiday merriment. The plus with all this garland making is that I had most all of the supplies on hand already (few things feel better than using up supplies) but even if this is your first time making one, the materials list is not at all extensive and you should try this, ok?
Bend the wire into letters and cut, referencing the previous letter to make sure they’re all about the same size and height. My letters are about 6.5 inches in height.
I get asked a lot where I source florals from, and 99% of the time it’s Whole Foods. I don’t even regularly shop there for food, but I will frequently browse their florals for inspiration because they do an excellent job of stocking all the good seasonal stuff. That’s how I found this Australian pine. Initially I thought it would be cool to utilize that ombre thing happening at some of the tips but there weren’t enough of them in my bunch, so I ditched that idea and only used the all green ones.
Wrap pieces of the pine around the wire letters using the floral wire. Overlap the pieces at the corners as best as possible.
Tie the letters to the string, making sure each letter has two attachment points at the top or else they’ll hang funny.
I contemplated hanging other things off the string, but simplicity tends to always win that decision for me. Still, I think combining this with something like a pom pom or star garland would look very cute, and even adding those things on to the ends of this garland would work well, too!
