We love a good garland. They are actually pretty versatile as a decorative piece in your Christmas decor theme. You can drape them over pretty much which ever surface your can find around the home. And definitely think about incorporating them into different rooms in the house. You can hang garlands on the fireplace mantlepiece, over door frames, windows, and cupboards. Think about dressing the outside of the house with Christmas garlands for extra kerbside impact.
Christmas garlands range from the budget options up to luxury styles. You can buy them in the store, online, or make your own. We have included some craft and DIY ideas below, please how to dress them up creatively.
Enjoy choosing your Christmas garlands this year!
