Make an Evergreen Garland

Evergreen ropes, garlands, or festoons are made in much the same manner as wreaths. Fairly heavy wire, an old rope, or an old electric light cord is recommended for the base or frame unless you are making a short decoration. One end of the cord or wire should be fastened to a stationary object, such as a door knob or chair, to make your work easier.

Short evergreen sprigs, about 3 to 4 inches long, are then fastened on with florist’s wire in the same fashion as in making the wreath. To add color to the decoration, attach cones, fruits and berries – or even fresh fruits – at regular intervals. Your favorite Christmas cards may also be used.

Festoons, garlands, and ropes make very good pieces for exterior door and window deco­rations, for staircases, or for the front of fire places.

If you are fortunate enough to have an old set of sleigh bells you have an excellent base for an interior rope or garland.  Attach your sprays of evergreen at the top and bottom of the bells, but do not cover them.  You may also find loos sleigh bells at your local dollar store or craft store.
