Time to bring Christmas greens indoors with a festive garland! This 6ft garland is filled with pinecones, and made with local cedar and fir. It's perfect for dressing up your table, mantle or anything that needs some extra Christmas cheer!
Keep reading for the simple tutorial. You can also check out our Reel for the super speedy version!
Step 1: Lay out all of your greenery and snip the branches into groupings of equal sized pieces. Pictured below is what we have and how we laid it out. Everything but the clippers is included in the kit!
Lindsey's Tip: "Make sure you cut your branches with enough length to be able to fasten together!"
Step 2: Make your first bundle with a mix of both the cedar and pine. Fasten with the wire provided as shown in the video below.
Lindsey's Tip: "Use all of your material! Even the "ugly" or sparse stuff!"
Step 3: Make a second bundle and lay along first bundle, staggering the greenery and wire together. Continue this process till you get the desired length!
Step 4: Once you have reached your desired length and you are ready to attach your last bundle, flip the bunch to lay in the opposite direction and wire together!
Step 5: Wire pinecones and attach them throughout garland. You can do groupings of two or three!
Step 6: And you're done! ENJOY!! :-)
Lindsey's Tip: "Once you have selected the perfect spot for your festive garland, leave it to be admired but make sure to mist 1-3x/week! This helps to keep the freshness last as long as possible."
