DIY Garland

Don’t leave your mantle naked this season! Dress it up with a beautiful and easy to make garland from lifestyle blogger Rebecca Heart of Mike and Me


  • Start with a faux piece of garland. Use Command hooks by 3M to hold it up (holds strong, easy to use, removes cleanly). The piece I used in this picture was only $3 from a thrift store.
  • Now using bunches of real greenery ($5 each at the hardware store, I used two) cut small pieces and start filling in the greenery, adding to the faux strand. It’s best to do one type of greenery at a time to make sure it’s even and balanced throughout.
  • Use floral wire or clips to attach it to the faux piece and secure it into place.
  • You can also use the faux wired garland to help wrap around pieces to hold it and shape it the way you want.
  • Go over it to cut any stray or lose looking pieces.
  • Mist it every couple days to keep it alive and voila!
