This time of year fresh garland is a must in my house! I try to sneak it into every room. Wondering how you can find space for fresh garland in your home? We are going to go over 7 ways to use the 7ft. garland from Trader Joes. From traditional placements, like over the mantel and on the table as a centerpiece, to creating a custom looking wreath for less than $4. We will get your creative juices flowing and have you thinking of all kinds of new ways to put that garland to use!
4. So what can you do with 1 1/2 feet of garland, make a home for your glass hurricane! Grab some wire that can be found in the wreath section of most craft and fabric stores, and attach the two end pieces of the garland to make a circle. You can adjust the diameter of the circle to fit the size of your glass hurricane. This is such a simple and inexpensive way to add detail and depth to all your centerpieces!
5. Here again, is a very simple and traditional way to put fresh garland to use. I did connect two of the 7ft. garland pieces to allow for extra length to go around the front door. Add some bright white lights, and when the sun goes down, you have created a festive way to greet guests at your door!
6. I just love having a house full of people around the holidays! I really do! One thing I like to have in each of the guestrooms and bathrooms is fresh flowers or greenery. Again, instead of throwing these garland remnants out, place sprigs (big and small) in different size vases. Add some fresh berries to add color, or stick with all green.
7. Can we first just take a moment and give a round of applause for Target now carrying Joanna Gaines Hearth & Home! Oh my goodness, I will take it all please. I mention this because this wrapping paper is Hearth & Home. It has just enough color and pattern to compliment the simplicity of the sprig of garland and berry. In my book, a gift wrapped with twine and garland is a gift well wrapped!
