For the garland above, I used some hemp string for a natural, rustic feel. For a second garland for my stairs I used red yarn. I have a random assortment of ribbon on hand from past projects and gifts. I just needed to make a trip to the craft store for some pinecones.
String or yarn - enough to go across wherever you plan to hang your garland
- Cut a length of string long enough to span across where ever you want to hang your garland.
- About 8 inches from one end, tie your first pinecone.
- Cut a piece of ribbon about about 6 inches in length. To get the forked end, fold the ribbon in half and cut on a diagonal so the edges of the ribbon will become points.
- Use just one knot to tie the ribbon on to the string about 4 inches or so from the pinecone.
- Alternate tying pinecones and ribbons for the length of your string.
- Hang your garland in its new home to enjoy for the season.
