In years past, I’ve always put up fresh garland around the house because I love how it smells…and it reminds me of London, where fresh Christmas decor rules the day. There’s one problem with this, fresh garland is pretty expensive. In fact, I couldn’t find it anywhere for any price anywhere near what I was willing to pay. So. I had an idea.
There are six, dollar stores within a mile of my house (yes, you read that right), so I went to one and purchased two strands of already-lit cheapy ugly garland.
Then I used butcher twine to tie the real branches to the cheap, lit garland. And embellished it with ornaments that we already had and stockings, and etc.
Take that, London.
