2 easy tree garlands

November 19, 2011

A pretty little creation that is as easy as 1-2-3.  That’s what I love.  And here are two easy garlands for the Christmas tree.

Here’s the first.

.

I assembled this using snippets of fabric left over from last year’s menswear wreath, jute twine, white buttons and ornament clips.  So easy.  With cuteness to spare.

.

.

Here’s the second.

.

It’s really last year’s garland, but so cute and easy, worthy of highlighting again.  Faux popcorn garland made by tying overhand knots in a length of nylon rope, the kind you use for clotheslines.

.

.

A whole lot easier than stringing real popcorn.  But it still makes you smile.  For some additional garland inspiration, here’s a corrugated paper chain, and a whole roundup of other pretty and inspired garlands!

    Diane, both these garlands are so awesome!

    Love your use of buttons and bows in the first one – so sweet and charming!

    And the second one – Faux popcorn garland – is pure genius! OMG, yes, it really DOES look like popcorn!

    I always enjoy reading about how you construct your lovely creations, because the way in which give direction makes it seem so easy.

    And i LOVE easy!

    Thanks for sharing, dear friend!

    Hope you’re having a stunning weekend!

    X to you and Cristybella!

    Buttons and bows–easy peasy and cuter than cute.

    *making a mental note*

    But alas….LOL I’m working on holiday cards as evidenced by the buried table and meals being taken in the living room. 😀
    Ooops….I meant ‘Oh darn’! :-/

    Love them both! I’m hoping to find time to make a new garland or two this year. They’re such a fun way to add some Christmas cheer.

    The plaid with the buttons is so cute! The faux popcorn one would look really good with some seashell ornaments I have.

    That button garland is adorable! It reminds me of something that would be found in a Norman Rockwell Christmas scene.

    Having grown up in the marine industry, my eyes didn’t see faux popcorn. They saw an awesome garland with nautical flair! Pinning!

    Garlands are so sweet. I love it when a tree has just lots of different garlands on it! Such a primitive and vintage way of looking at the holiday.
