    :tree: Christmas Garland

    The most common garland is probably tinsel garland:







    We used to make paper chains at school and they seem to be rising in popularity:



    Some people want to be more creative:


    I like beaded garland(these are two of my trees):





    One year I did this:



    And this is what I call tinsel:

    I have never cared much for the tinsel garland; at least not on a tree. I prefer beads (I use clear/opaque ones) and/or tinsel. and I still use bows, usually winter white. I used to use all red bows, and way back when, I used alternating red and pink/white checkered bows, but no beads. also back then, we made popcorn garland, 3 strings, for garland

    Merry, I always love your trees and decorations. you are so creative.

    I usually have the tinsel for the tree and when i was little we would have paper chains around the room. It would be our first sign to put decorations up when my Dad would walk in and put them in front of me and my brother

    When you say "tinsel" in the UK, does it mean the stuff in my first photo?

    Thanks, now that I don't have my seven-foot tree, I don't seem to have any good ideas.

    One year, when our dog was a puppy actually, I had made a garland with pop corn, it was really impressing!!
    Unfortunately, when we went to sleep, my dog ate the popcorn...

    When I was fist married, we used tinsel. When the kids were young we used red garland (tinsel garland). In the last few years, I have used silver bead garland situated between white tinsel garland
