No place for a Christmas tree at home? This simple Christmas Tree Garlands will be the easiest and simple this to put at your home. Garlands can be more fun as an adult to make than it was as a child making garlands out of construction paper.  Garland making is pretty simple and can make for a  fun Girls Night In.  All you have to do is gather a bunch of garland making supplies, a few bottles of wine, and girlfriends for a fun night of holiday cheer and creativity.  Some eggnog and Christmas cookies might help, too.

We’ve got the tutorial on how to make your own adorable, old-fashioned garland. To create this you might need a bunch of tips and tricks. As it isn’t as easy as you might think! Plus, how to keep it fresh for years.

  • To store garland tangle-free, carefully wind them around cardboard wrapping paper tubes.
  • Garland has more impact when it is doubled up.

All you need for this project is some construction paper and strings. Start by cutting the paper into a square,  the bigger your square is the bigger you got. Start by creating guiding lines by folding the paper in half in both horizontal and vertical way.
