Garland has become something we can use all year round. From birthday banners to wedding flair, it’s a great way to add a creative element to your home and event decor!

For this DIY we are stringing together a winter tree garland that you can leave up the entire season.

White with gold accents create a neutral, yet inviting color scheme that will pair well with your existing holiday decorations. It’s all about creating pieces you can use and reuse, time and time again!

You will need:

White and Gold acrylic paint

Twine

Thick cardboard or craft wood (You can find this at most craft stores)

Gold Glitter

 

Step One: Cut your cardboard or craft wood into 10 trees. Here is a stencil you can print: Free Tree Stencil

Step Two: Cut a slit up the bottom of five trees and a slit down the top of five trees.

For the five trees that have the slit on the top, punch two holes, this is where you will feed in your twine later.

Step Three: Paint your trees white

Step Four: Let it dry

Step Five: Brush your gold paint across each tree in various spots, there’s no wrong way to do this, so have fun!

Step Six: Add glitter (we love lots of glitter!)

Step Seven: Feed your twine & hang it up!

The sugar should be wet but not soupy. If too much coconut oil is used, the mixture will solidify once the coconut oil returns to room temperature.
