Lets leave the philosophy behind for today and talk trends. I define decorating trends as patterns of decorating that I find myself using over and over. Garlands have been such a fun way to decorate, an easy way of bringing color and your own personal style to any room in your home. I more often then not have a garland on my mantle. You can add them to shelves, tack them to the ceiling, and drape them across frames or mirrors.
I have made garland out of paper, photos, fabric, and yarn. I have purchased bead garlands and felt garlands, Many of my garlands have started out as birthday or holiday decorations, and when the event is over, I have added them to a room in my home. They can be inexpensive and easy to make. I have shared a few garlands here, here, here, and here. Make or buy one today. They are such a fun way to add personal style to your home.
