How to make a Christmas garland for fireplace

If you want to get creative, you can make your own Christmas garland. Give your fireplace a festive look by adding a Christmas garland. Christmas garlands don’t have to be too expensive. You can spend what you want. Please follow our tips for creating a stunning Christmas garland:

  1. Please start with the base, assemble the garland with hooks on the fireplace with clips to keep it in place.
  2. Hang the battery-operated lights around the base.
  3. Drape the greenery stems over each side of the garland. Weave the eucalyptus in and out until you like what you see.
  4. Decorate with accessories, like ribbons, baubles and ornaments.

If you are using real garland or greenery, remember to mist it to avoid drying out. Too much heat or direct sunlight is bad for the condition of the garland. Mist it regularly to keep it shiny.   

Where to hang a Christmas garland

You can put a Christmas garland in many places in your home and even outdoors. A Christmas garland above the fireplace is the most famous spot, but did you know you can use Christmas garlands all over the house? Here is some inspiration to decorate your home during the holidays:

  • Christmas table garland: place the garland in the middle of the table during the Christmas dinner. Decorate it with lights and accessories for a festive look.
  • Christmas door garland: combine garlands with a wreath to give your guests the warmest welcome they could wish for. Hang two garlands on each side of the door and one on top of the door to top it off.
  • Christmas garland for stairs: the stairs are one of the best places to decorate during the holiday season. Weave the garland between the stairs to create a festive look.
  • Outdoor Christmas garland: decorate your porch by hanging a garland around the pillars.

Use adhesive hooks to assemble the Christmas garland. These hooks are available in small sizes and won’t do any damage to your walls, doors or furniture.
