Since the holiday season brings joy and happiness to the world, then the decoration should also be cheerful. So what is more cheerful than colors? That’s why the colorful ornament garland seems to be a great item to be used in your Christmas decoration. It adds colors to your tree or even to your mantelpiece, and brings life and originality to your decoration.
In fact, you can easily create your own colorful ornament garland. This way, you can choose the colors of ornaments that suit your home decoration and theme.
As shown in the tutorial, to create the ornament garland you will need a wire and a set of ornaments. Creating the garland consists of only inserting the ornaments in the wire. Bundle the ornaments tightly together to give the garlands some volume. You may also want to replace the wire by a colored ribbon or tulle to add more colors to the garland; however, for doing this, you will need a long embroidery needle to help you to insert the ornaments into the ribbon. If you have old ornaments that you no longer use, bring them too. They might look good collaborated.
But you have to be aware on the type of ribbon or wire you choose to use. If the ornaments were heavy, make sure to use the sturdy type. Plus, you will need to secure the metal caps on the ornaments using hot glue or super glue, so they won’t fall off.
The colorful ornament garland can be simply laid on the mantelpiece, or hung from side to side by washers like the way Martha Stuart did in the tutorial. Moreover, the ornament garland can be used to decorate your tree, also, in a non-traditional manner.
Now that’s a fun way to start off with your Christmas decoration!
