Now you can purchase a vast range of garlands made from materials that ensure they are long lasting and can be used year after year. Decorate your home with garlands and everyone who visits will know that you are filled with festive cheer.
There Are Lots of Garland Styles to Choose
If you prefer to decorate your house with softer colours, you can also find garland in pale mauve and other pastel hues. Thanks to the artificial garland, you can use it outside your home too without fear of inclement weather since it can hold up in those rare rainy December days or nights.
Inside your home, you can use the natural green garland on top of your fireplace. Lay it across the mantle stretched from end to end. You can cut pieces of garland to make appear fuller.
You can also opt for a pop of colour by getting a Poinsettia Garland, lush and red in colour, with artificial lights to brighten everything up.
Make Your Own Christmas Garlands
Get the garland that has a thin wire in it so you can bend it and shape it. Tuck red holly berries among the garland and wrap pieces of it around the bottoms of Christmas candles. Garland can also be used on top of curtain rods in any room to bring in a touch of Christmas.
If you live in a house or apartment with an upstairs living area, you can twine garland through the spirals of the stairs along the banisters. Intersperse the garland with lights for added punch.
A really fun looking garland is the one made from felt in the shape of Santa. It is Santa hanging out his laundry. This would look perfect hanging above the fireplace.
Add a Garland to Your Christmas Tree
You can also use garland on your Christmas tree if you have an artificial tree and the limbs show the middle rod of the tree. You can wrap the natural green garland around the rod of the tree and it gives the tree a fuller appearance. The different colours of garland can be looped around your Christmas tree to give it that dazzling effect.
Outside your house, the garland can be wrapped around the columns of your porch or across the porch railing. You can find real or artificial potted Christmas trees. Decorate one with ornaments and light, finish it off with garland and set it by your front door for a touch of Christmas for all your guests to see as they arrive.
