DIY Dollar Store Christmas Garland

This simple Christmas Garland was made with supplies from the Dollar Tree, and it only cost $7 to make!
The first thing you'll need to do is gather your supplies. These can be purchased at the Dollar Tree, either in store or online!

  • 2 15 ft. long garlands
  • 2 poinsettia flower clips
  • 2 small bell strands
  • 1 large bell
  • Hammer + nails for hanging the garland
These poinsettia flower clips are so easy to use.

You can seriously stick them on any wreath or garland in just a few seconds!
And this is the bell I picked up that is going to be the centerpiece of the garland.

Thankfully, it already has a loop of garland attached to the top of it, which is very helpful!
This video goes over all the steps I took to make this Christmas garland.

But if you'd like written out instructions, I've included the summarized versions of them below.

And if you want even more in-depth instructions, then please feel free to visit my blog post here!

  1. Cut both garlands in half, and then twist the four strands of garland together to create one thicker strand of garland.
  2. Slide the bell onto the garland until it gets to the middle.
  3. Shape the garland however you would like to. Because I don't have a fireplace mantel, I'm going to be hanging this on the wall. So I had to shape it with four points and three loops, so it would hang well over the four screws I have on the wall of my dining room.
  4. Wrap the bell strands around the garland.
  5. Clip the poinsettia flowers on the garland.
  6. Hang the garland on the wall and admire your handiwork!
This is how the garland turned out in the end.

I absolutely love it!
I think it is so festive, and I love how it looks above my dining table!
