Where and How to Hang your Christmas Garland

A garland is a classic holiday decoration that can be hung almost anywhere and in any way you want. Whether or not it’s embellished with lights or ornaments, the foliage creates a festive atmosphere as it brings a touch of nature into your home. In this post, Tree Classics features some of the spaces where you can display the all-around foliage for a lovely holiday ambience.

Doorways and arches

The entryway is a great place to hang a garland. Often paired with a wreath, a garland bordering the front door receives your guests with cheer and warmth. Flank the door frame with this foliage piece with the help of a set of screw-eyes installed around the frame. The heavier the garland, the more screws you will need. Thread pieces of wire through each screw-eye, and then use these wires to secure the garland.

Garlands are also perfect for highlighting interior arches. Hang a garland here the same way you would on a doorframe. If you don’t want to drill holes on the walls, use command hooks. These hooks can stick to almost any surface and can be removed neatly.

Staircases

Garlands can cheer up a plain staircase. If you want to draw your guests’ eyes upwards, tie it along the handrail on a straight line using yarn or wire. If you want it to serve as an accent for your foyer, create a pattern by making it go in and out of the balusters, or let it drape by tying different segments of the garland to the handrail. For a touch of fun, use ribbons that match your decorating motif.

Fireplace Mantle

Mantle swags are not the only foliage that can go with the fireplace. If you want to cover the entire mantle, use a long garland that you can drape toward the floor. Stick some command hooks on the mantle to keep the garland in its place. For added color or sparkle, clip some ornaments on the garland’s needle tips.

Columns

The columns in the front porch are a good canvas for these verdant decorative pieces. Screw a hook to the ceiling near the pillar, and then attach one end of the garland to the hook with thread or wire. Wrap the garland around the column until it reaches the bottom, letting some areas of the pillar show through. Secure the other end of the garland to the floor with a tack nail. If you want to cover the column entirely, you will need to extend the garland’s length by attaching another piece to the end of the first one. Top off the decorated column with a huge red ribbon for a bright accent.

Ceiling

When bordered with garlands, the porch ceiling is a charming sight, especially when lit with clear or multicolor lights. Screw eye bolts to the ceiling and hang the garlands from them with yarn or wire. Stretch out the foliage to form a straight line, or let it hang loose with some parts draping from the ceiling.

With creativity and imagination, you can discover some more places, and ways to hang these timeless Christmas decorations. Adorn your home with garlands to inspire a festive ambience for the holidays.
