A garland or wreath bordering the front door is an especially warm, welcoming sight for your guests. Here’s how to hang a garland around your door. Flank the door frame with this foliage piece using screw-eyes installed around the frame. Thread wire through each screw-eye to help secure the garland. You can also use a doorway garland hanger, which adjusts to the door width and can be used for both indoor and outdoor frames. You can simply pair your garland with a wreath for your front door to complete the look.

If your home has interior arches, garlands are the perfect way to highlight them. To save your walls from holes, use command hooks; they can stick to almost any surface and can be removed neatly.

Draw your guests’ eyes upward by tying a garland to the handrail using yarn, string, or wire. It’s really easy too.You can also accentuate your foyer by weaving the garland through the balusters or letting it drape by tying different segments to the handrail. Another tip is to attach the garland at the base of the balusters along the length of the staircase to leave the handrail free. Add ribbons that match your decorating theme for a touch of color and fun.

Mantel swags are not the only greenery that can go with the fireplace. A long, draping garland covering the entire mantel and framing the fireplace adds a cozy touch to your living room. You can use command hooks to hold the garland in place without damaging your mantel. Clipping some of your favorite ornaments on the garland’s tips will also add texture to your decoration.
