Happy Holiday Season y’all!!! The holidays bring out the crafter in me (both for gifts and decorations) so today I’m going to show you how to DIY your own flower garland. I’ve been in a long standing love affair with anything and everything floral so I decided to incorporate that into my Christmas decor this year. I chose to go with all metallic and glitter flowers because what’s the point of embracing the holiday season if your decorations don’t glitter so hard they hurt your eyes, right?
For this project you only need one thing – fake flowers. That’s it. I got mine this past weekend from Michaels because they were having a 50% off fake flower sale (SCORE). I have a 6 foot tree and ended up using two large bouquets of flowers and two tiny bouquets in gold, copper and white.
Cut each of the flowers off of the bouquet while leaving about four to six inches on the stem. You want them on the longer side so you can stick them in the tree and have them stay upright. Once all of your flowers are chopped, start layering them throughout your tree! I decided to do a slight diagonal to simulate “garland” without having to actually string them together. If your flowers are having a hard time staying in place, try wrapping a few of the branches around a stem to create a branch knot. Bonus tip, since my tree sits up against the wall I didn’t have to decorate the back half of the tree.
You can do anywhere from three to five rows of flowers depending on your tree and flower size and then you’re done! A beautiful fake garland that you can reuse year round depending on the occasion.
