Jenny Dixon is back with another creative and easy-to-make holiday tuTORIal! To bring a little extra holiday spirit into your home, Jenny has shown you how to make Hot Chocolate Play Dough, how to upcycle your old holiday cards into gift tags, and now she’s giving us the DIY details on how to create a festive and beautiful garland made out of Christmas tree ornaments. Without further ado, here is Jenny’s tuTORIal on how to make an Ornament Garland:
I love the simplicity and beauty of this ornament garland. It was so easy to make, my four year old did most of the work!
Here is what you will need:
- Ornaments (roughly 75 ornaments for 4 feet) – I mixed new ornaments with vintage ones that I found at a local thrift store
1. Tape one end of the ribbon and twist tape to create a needle. This will make threading your ornaments through the ribbon easier.
2. Thread ornaments through the ribbon one at a time, alternating colors. Reserve at least 24″ of ribbon at each end for hanging.
3. Hang, wasn’t that easy?
And there you have it! The perfect holiday décor to bring some cheer and sparkle into your home.
Such chic holiday décor! I absolutely love this craft – so easy to make, and most of us already have the materials. I can see Stella crafting one of these now… A huge thank you to Jenny for sharing this beautiful and super easy to make holiday craft.
