I love Christmas.  So I couldn’t wait to decorate.  I always buy garland but this year I thought I’d try to make it.  It seemed easy enough.

I gathered all the cuttings yesterday and put them in water and garland fresh overnight.  The next day they all seemed pretty healthy so I started making the garland.  It was a great day to be outside so I chose to work outside because it gets kind of messy.

All I needed was floral wire, wire cutters, and pruners and I was ready to create.  Some of the branches were curvy, but it went together pretty easy.  I layered each branch, running the same way and  up against the door frame to see how they were going to hang.  I had to wrap the branches with wire in multiple areas to keep it together, but, for my first try, It turned out ok!
