Garland Making.

This year I really wanted a fresh garland around my front door and I was feeling ambitious enough to try and make one myself.
Here is how I did it:

I picked up a fake wire garland strand at the thrift store.
Floral wire
Wire cutters
And a LOT of green bows.

Cutting the bows into smaller piece, you wire a small bunch  together then wire the bunch on the garland.

You repeat this over and over and over again, overlapping the bunches slightly to give a fuller look and hiding the wires. It took me roughly 2 hours to finish a garland long enough to go around my door.

Using some extra bows to fill my milk jug and my front entrance is complete.
