Â I had a lot of fun this weekend at the Artisan Christmas Market.Â I got to see a lot of you that come out regularly and it’s always a pleasure!Â One of the things that got the most comments was the ornament garland I had for sale.Â It’s very easy to make, so I though I would show you how to make it yourself and how I used it in my home.
What you need is between 10-20 small ornaments and twine.Â A good place to find the smaller ornaments, is at the craft store in the section with the small tree decor.
Â Cut the twine about a foot longer than you want it.Â Then sting one ornament on at a time, tying a knot around the ornament as you go.Â I started in the middle of the twine and went out.Â The spacing is a personal preference, as well.
Â It’s a fun way to mix texture into your decor. I used mine on my mantel with some fresh garland.
I’m not completely finished with my fireplace area, so here’s a sneak peek at what I’ve got so far.
I’m hoping to get all my holiday decorating finished in the next few days.Â I know…I’m a bit behind the rest of the blogging world! 😉
Merry Christmas to you too! I hope the holidays are wonderfully peaceful and relaxing for you. Gifts are wrapped, cards are written and sent, and last-minute orders are created and shipped. There is something soothing about the bright light that shines through the house in the darkness of a cold night.
To display your favorite ornaments, first place them in the first position on the tree. Next, hang your large ornaments and dedicate them evenly around the tree. I’m wrapping it around things and you can also hang ornaments on it “as needed to fill the right place.” Goes and hangs around.
Love how your garland came out! I’m obsessed with ornament garlands.
