Iíve just finished a garland like Sandraís for DIL
They live in an old farm house with a huge switch back stair case
The garland is cheap as chips stuff from amazon but I tied in red berry garland from home Bargins layered red and black tartan ribbon faux antlers and red and tartan baubles and battery lights
The whole thing is 28 feet long and we used zip ties and the actual wired branches to attach all the lengths and sheís attached it to the bottom board with command hooks
It looks stunning as you come in the front door sheís putting the 9 ft tree in the same colours in the corner by the stairs
Her Dad and DS apparently did a bit of this wonít work hold her reply your Mum says it will to which DS said it will then and said no more

Thatís lovely Helen, really traditional. Iím impressed you did 28í of it, more patient than I am! Did you layer it or is that the length of the staircase?

I did all 28 feet itís the length of the stair and gallery landing you can see from below
It took a couple of evenings longest bit tiring all the pine cones ribbon and bits of pine on to the garden twine but it was done in sections and then hung due to the weight
Actually found it very relaxing to do

How did you fix the pine cones please? I have a very plain wreath from a school fete I plan to upscale (less is more is not in my vocabulary) and the pinecone it did have fell off when it fell off the buggy.

Sue they are tied on to the garden twine with florist wire available on line from Jonny craft etc I buy it on a paddle but you can get it in lengths a big packet pound land think,they are maybe 10 inches long which might be easier if you donít want to use Daves wire cutters
I cut a length the fold it in half put it round the bottom of the pine cone twist it to secure then use the two tails to tie on to your garland or wreath
Poundland have dried orange slices cinamon sticks pine cones etc
You can use the wire to tie on ribbon baubles etc
Itís teally easy and Home Bargins have some really nice berry garland to pad it out
If you wants some ribbon to add in just let me know and Iíll show you hat I have
