Decided to make a couple of changes to my Christmas garland this year to make it even more beautiful! Love the look of garland with several different types of foliage intermixed within it. Makes the garland look fuller, more interesting, and more ornate. Going to walk you through the steps I took to create my own garland for the staircase and a super easy way to hang it! I used all artificial elements so I can reuse every year and because I am decorating so early this year (I want to make sure it lasts through Christmas!)

Step 1 – 3: Using removable hooks to hang the garland
I am so obsessed with these Command removable hangers and use them for all my Christmas decorations. A super easy way to get everything hung into place with easy removal at the end of the season. I placed the hooks on the bottom and top of the banister for the start and finish of the garland. I also placed hooks along the handrail (every 4 rungs) to create a draping effect with the garland.
Step 4: Hanging standard artificial evergreen garland
Next I hung inexpensive standard evergreen garland up the staircase using the Command removable hangers.
Step 5: Cutting artificial eucalyptus branches off of stems
I cut artificial eucalyptus branches off the larger stems. I made approximately 8 inch branches.
Step 6-7: Attaching eucalyptus branches to the evergreen garland
I attached the eucalyptus branches to the evergreen garland using floral wire.
Step 8: A beautiful, unique, and full garland.
