Introduction: Twig Garland
A simple rustic/farmhouse style garland that is easy to make. It is a nice natural addition to any holiday decor.
Step 1: Gather Supplies
You will need:
Tree branches of different varieties the approximate thickness of a pencil.
String, twine, jute, or yarn
Snips or pruning shears
Step 2: Cut Branches
Using your snips or pruning shears cut the branches into approximately 3-inch pieces.
Step 3: Cut the Twine
Cut a 3-foot piece of the twine and fold in half.
Create a simple over-under not and tighten the twine around a piece of the 3-inch twigs making sure it is centered.
Double knot it to secure.
Step 4: Add More Twigs
Repeat the process of adding twigs and double knotting them until there are about 4 inches of twine left.
You will need it to attach the next section.
Continue making sections until you have enough to achieve your desired length.
Step 5: Connect the Sections
Tie the sections together to make the continuous garland
Trim the leftover twine
and that's it.
