I love my twigs and sticks for home decor, but if I can get a garland out of it, I’m all for it!

So I created another very simple idea. So what should we call this garland? Zig zag? Charlie Brown Sweater? I guess chevron will do. 🙂

Hence… here’s a super unique rustic tree branch garland, chevron-style, that’s easy to make and absolutely free!

How-to:

.

I cut down straight twigs to all the same size with a miter saw.

Each twig end was tied together with light twine, then twisted to the side, allowing for the next join.

Each twig join also got hit with a little bit of hot glue.

I tried it without the glue but the twig garland was a little too fragile.

So simple and rather cute!

Next up, I hung the garland up on the front door, and added yet another evergreen branch garland right above it!

Two bows in each corner completed the cozy, festive look!

No Christmas front door wreath required this round!

  1. Donna it’s beautiful both in shape and materials. It hits me in the sweet spot when I see wonderful handmade decorations, they’re so ‘not store bought’ it makes the holiday so wonderful. I rarely purchase premade decorations anymore when there are so many things we can make ourselves with items right at our fingertips, it’s amazing if you just put your mind to it!

  2. Donna! This is beautiful. What an unexpected touch! Freakin’ love it! I seriously need twig EVERYWHERE now! Great photos too – that second shot (the close up) of the garland on your door gave me goosebumps! Fantastic!
