Christmas tree garland usually consist of ribbon but in this post I’m sharing a fun, creative new twist. Try out this Christmas tree garland trick using a table cloth during your next holiday season.
I bought this gorgeous plaid tablecloth from Marshalls. It was only $9.99 for the large rectangle one, $7.99 for the round. I bought the big one because I had planned to use it for my kitchen table decor.
Marshall’s, Home Goods and TJ Maxx all have these type of fabric table clothes every season. Choose the color you prefer from what they have in stock.
I thought I had decided on a tree garland but then this light bulb went off and I had that aha moment.
You know what I mean, the kind of moment that has you on the floor cutting a brand new tablecloth with scissors!!
That was it! I cut the plaid tablecloth into 6 inch wide strips.
Then I just weaved it around the tree. I used less than half of the table cloth so I already have a few ideas for the rest of it.
The Christmas tree garland is always the first layer on the tree. It allows you to see exactly how you like it.
I’ve always liked my garland draped in a traditional way but you could drape it from top to bottom or in random spots around the tree.
AND I have a new slim tree this year and I really like it. The one I have had for many, many years had to go after last year.
Since I knew I would replace it I went ahead and bought this one at Hobby Lobby discounted from $298 to $99 at the after Christmas sale last season. Then bought new LED lights from Lowe’s at there after Christmas sale.
This faux tree is very similar to mine is size and style.
All of my Santa decorations, new and vintage, look amazing with the plaid garland.
I have more projects to get finished this week to have all of my Christmas decor completed but I have to admit, doing it in small doses has worked so well this year I may have to do it every year.
This allowed me to host a party for my sister’s birthday on Sunday without having a complete mess!
I hope you have found something that gave you a light bulb moment. Use this link here to Pin to your Pinterest Christmas board.
