Rustic tree branch garland for Christmas
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!
Rustic tree branch garland for Christmas,
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!
Isn’t it the cutest?!
I love how the tree branch garland is there, but in a subtle way.
Sort of like an afterthought.
This rustic tree branch garland can be used in so many other ways:
- Window valance
- Fireplace mantel
- Strung on interior doors
… and more!
Christmas garlands from twigs are so fun to make, and so cost effective too! Here’s a few more twig garlands you may also enjoy!

Love your little chevron garland. It has twigs in them. What is there not to love.
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!
I have never been a fan of the chevron pattern, BUT this is the exception!
A neat twist on your other twig garland, both look very cool!
Comme avec peu de choses, l’on peut faire des merveilles !
Vive le côté nature !!
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!
Donna, that’s a great idea, and I am working on doing a simpler, more natural Christmas look this year (did I mention easier?). Love this look.
Original..That’s what I love about your blog..Ya never know what you will find..The door looks awesome..Have a wonderful week..
Very festive! I’m not a big fan (either) of the chevron patterns that are found everywhere, but I like this!!
Thank you for brightening everyday with you enthusiasm and creativity. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your son.
