Braided Streamer Christmas Garland

Making a colorful tree is a seasonal favorite of mine. I’ve found that making a big pile of garland goes a long way in turning an ordinary tree into a celebratory one. Marquee garland, bubble gum garland and beaded garland are a few favorites from years before.

This year’s tree got a bright head start with spray painting and it was finished off with this fun braided streamer garland. The braids go a long way in making a tree look festive and are easy peasy to make. Plan a night in with Netflix and make enough of this garland to finish off the tree, the mantel, the staircase… Cover the entire house in bright braided garland for a holiday look worthy of unicorns.

  1. Cut each length of streamer into three sections. You can make the lengths as long or short as needed.
  2. Tape the top of the braid onto a table or wall and braid the three sections together.
  3. Hang on the tree, on the mantel, or use the braids to wrap presents!

Do you have your tree done yet? I have this little spray painted beauty up in the studio and I used the braided garland (and these ornament balls) on our big family tree this year too – it’s a great combo. Happy Braiding!
