How much ribbon? And how to run ribbon through a garland…

  • For a 9 foot garland you will need 10 yards of ribbon. 
  • Take your ribbon at the 5 yard mark. (You can find the middle by unrolling the spool and folding it in half.)
  • Meet the 5 yard mark/middle of the ribbon with the middle point of the length of the garland. Twist the ribbon into the garland using two branches.
  • Then, move to one of the very ends of the garland and twist the ribbon into the garland, leaving a tail. Do this at both ends of the garland before tying down the middle parts. You should only have ribbon twisted into the garland in three places at this point: the middle, and two ends. This ensures that you end up running the ribbon throughout the entire garland evenly using all 10 yards. 
  • Twist in the rest of the ribbon in a pattern: side, middle, other side. It’s sort of a zig zag pattern. This ensures that the ribbon is evenly dispersed and looks beautiful from all angles. So not matter if you are looking at the top or bottom it will give the illusion that the ribbon is running through the entire garland. 

Adding Ornaments to a Garland…
There are a few different ways you can go about placing ornaments in your garland…

  1. If you want the primary focal point of the garland to be the middle, you can place all of your ornaments in the middle portion of the garland, with the ends and/or corners being accents. (For example: The garland in the picture just above.)
  2. If you would like to have ornaments throughout the entire length of the garland a good way to place your ornaments, as well as plan how many to buy, is to divide your garland into 3 foot sections. Set a pattern for the length of the 3 foot section, and repeat it 3 times. (For example: The garland pictured below.)
  3. Don’t be afraid to think outside of the box. Expand the overall look of the garland. The picture below draws your eye upward, to the top of the candles, all the way to the lowest hanging ornament. Your eye does not just see a narrow garland running across the mantel, but instead it has expanded into a 6 foot span. When adding candles for height in your design, bring the pine/greenery up as well with the candles and the garland. It really brings the look together, like it is all one piece. (The 3M hooks in this picture were used to hang a wreath, which the candlesticks frame, also tying together and completing the look.)
  4. Hanging ornaments with fishline and draping beaded garlands from your garland and mantel, really highlight the ornaments instead of the pine. This is a great way to showcase your most prized or delicate ornaments, instead of hiding them in the tree. 
  5. Hanging stockings can be challenging when you have a beautiful garland also hanging on your mantel. A great tip for this is to use 3M hooks to hang the stockings. Attach them to the fireplace and use coordinating ribbons to hang the stockings from the hooks. It will look like the stockings are hanging from the garland but they are really hanging from the mantel. The hooks are removable and you can also use them to securely hang the garland on the mantel. 

Hanging Garlands on a Staircase…

Here are a few tips for hanging a beautiful garland on your staircase or railing.

  • To figure out how long your garland needs to be, measure the length of the of the railing.
  • If you want your garland to run across the top of the railing, you will need the same length as the actual measurement of the railing.
  • If you want your garland to dip, you will need 2 to 2.5 times the amount of the actual measurement of the railing.
  • For a lit garland, always be sure to plug it in before you hang your garland, to make sure all of the lights are still working properly.
  • Also for a lit garland, always double check which end of the garland has the correct end of the cord you will need to plug into the wall. You don’t want to get it up and not be able to plug it in because the correct cord is on the opposite end.
  • Bring the ends of the garland all the way down to the floor, this makes it easier to reach the wall outlet in order to plug it in, and it will also hide the outlet and plug.
