Garland Christmas Tree DIY

Christmas is one of my favorite holidays. I'd have to say it's in part because of the amazing decorations I see every where I go around this time of year. I love how crafty and creative everyone gets. I guess that's why they say "tis the season to be jolly." I grew up with the ultimate crafter of crafting gurus - my mom.  Too bad Youtube wasn't around then, she's for sure be a star. I mean this woman can make anything she sees! My dad can even be a little crafty himself from time to time. Luckily I got their creative genes and I happen to LOVE creating. 

December is going to be a beyond busy month for me as I'm sure it will be for you. I wasn't sure if I wanted to put up a Christmas tree simply because I live in an apartment and I'm planning a wedding. So as you can imagine space has been posing as an issue. Still, I wanted to decorate because I've been in the Christmas spirit since October. Then, I was inspired by some Christmas garland (decorations from Christmas past that I never took down) to make a non traditional tree. If you are looking to save on space and time without forsaking glamour than this garland Christmas tree DIY is for you!

Materials

Garland(color of your choice)
Push pins
Bows
Scissors 

Gold Garland

Christmas Bows

Push Pins


Instructions

Step 1: Choose what space you want to put your Christmas tree. I choose above my bed.

Step 2: Cut a piece of garland for the bottom of your tree (mine was around 15 to 16 inches)

Step 3: Cut 4 more pieces of garland, each shorter than the next.

Note: The final piece of garland that you cut will act as the top of the tree.

Step 4: Using your push pins pin your garland to the wall starting from the bottom up.

Step 5: Once you are done pinning, choose a pretty bow to act as the star at the top of your tree!

Optional: Add small bows as ornaments!

Simple, easy, and glamorous!
