Material Require to Make Garlands
1 – Evergreen Branches Christmas
You need evergreen of branches from white pine, cypress, ivy, Fraser fir, and some other random pine. These branches may be easily available from your own lawn garden, neighbor’s garden or you can purchase these from market. If your neighbors have such trees in their lawns, I think they do never refuse to take out branches because they are also as excited on Christmas as you are. Usually people are happy to let you tidy up their plants wishing a side part participation in your excitement. Keep in mind green branches should be cut in lengths 6” to 1” depending on how thick or wide garland you want to prepare. Be careful while you cut the branches, extra-ordinary cutting may disappoint your family or neighbors.
2 – 24 Gauge Floral Wire
Use 24 gauge floral wires to make the garlands/swags, just make sure it’s thick enough that you can pull it without it breaking but thin enough to wind it easily. Green florist wire is much better than others because it will blend better. Such crafting definitely makes the garland look more dazzling, freshly and smelly.
3 – Rustic Wire 18 Gauge
Use rustic wire 18 gauges, usually, in brown color that is best wire because it is strongly enough to hold the garland together, thin enough to cover easily, and it held its shape better than the rope. Cut it into the lengths you want your finished garland to be. In old times mostly people used ropes for this purpose instead of wire. But that way is not secure to make modern Garland/swag. Always try latest materials.
4 – Use Rustic Clippers

Secure your two wires together.
Take a handful of greenery (all facing the same way) and attach the wire through the middle. It is not important that the wire be 100% covered because, let’s face it, you’re going to be putting layer after layer after layer of greenery on this puppy. As you extend beyond it will cover most gaps.
Afterward take the floral wire and wrap it a couple of times around the whole bundle near the ends of the greenery. Do not cut the wire. It needs to stay in one continuous strand to help hold the whole thing together.
Take another bundle of greenery and bundle it around the first piece and the wire, BUT make sure the ends are maybe 1-3? further down the wire. Then take the STILL ATTACHED floral wire and wrap it a couple of times to secure the second bundle. Now repeat this about 10 billion times for however long you want your garland to be.
Basically you just going to keep going, bundle, wrap, bundle, wrap, bundle, wrap… Of course it will be the coldest day of the year when you choose to do this outside. So you might also want to bundle and wrap yourself.
Now that you are almost at the end of your garland you may realize “How the Hell am I going to finish this?” Well it is pretty simple. When you’re one bundle away from finishing the garland take the last bundle and turn it the opposite direction and secure it end to end with the last piece. Now you may tie off your floral wire and cut it.
Bend the piece going in the wrong direction back on itself and stick some random pieces of greenery in the few wires that show. Voila, your done! And probably cold and sticky, but DONE!
