Mother Nature is the gift that keeps on giving!

Hey 👋 y’all! This year I’m going for a Scandinavian Christmas Look! Filling my house with nature! ..I wanted to have a inexpensive garland that had that beautiful wow factor. Lo and behold, my back yard had the answer!!!! FREE...So, I Went in my backyard and cut some pieces of my evergreen and then bent the wire on the old garland to hold each piece as I stacked and layered the evergreens onto the cheap garland. easiest diy ever!!


  1. Super Pruner Looper
  2. Wheel Barrow
  3. Old garland

First step, using your pruner snip off some evergreens. Gather as much as you can, the more the merrier, and you can choose the best ones from the batch.

Once you have a nice batch of greenery, pile it in your wheelbarrow, and head home.

Then you bring everything into your house, yup even the wheel barrow lol Lay old garland into its location and you start layering and stacking your way up!

I added some other decorative garland to add some cheer.

And that's it! It looks so lovely!
