DIY Ornament Garland

Hey there! Have you finished decking the halls yet!? I think I have almost finished! This is actually the first year I decorated our mantels for Christmas. I couldn’t find a vintage-look ornament garland at a price I wanted to pay, so I decided to make my own!

I purchased this set of mini vintage-look ornaments on Amazon. They are really good quality and are quite heavy.

I chose to string them on twine. I wanted my garland to be 9ft, so I cut my twine around 12ft (two of my table lengths).

This garland was so easy! I just strung each ornament on my twine and secured them with a simple knot. I spaced each ornament 3 inches apart. I was left with about 2 inches of twine at the end, so I would recommend cutting a bit longer than I did!

For my mantel, I layered a flocked pine garland, wood bead garland and then the ornament garland. I also added a string of twinkle lights.

I used Command Cord Bundlers to hang everything. They just stick to the mantel and remove damage free when Christmas is over! I used 3 cord bundlers - 1 on each side and then 1 in the middle of the mantel. You could also use tiny nails with some thin wire, like floral wire.
I wanted to add a string of bells to one side of garland, but I had a hard time finding them, so I used these bell ornaments I got from Walmart last year.

I just looped each ornament together and hung the final loop through my cord bundler on the one side.

I also found these adorable mini glass snowmen my mom gifted me for my first Christmas tree. I haven’t used these in a few years in fear of toddler fingers getting ahold of them. So, I decided to turn these into a garland as well!

I strung them on twine and spaced them 3” apart as well! So stinking cute!!!

What do you think!? Will you make an ornament garland this year too?
