Sure, you could buy a traditional type of garland decoration. Nothing wrong with that. But I for one love to buck a trend. In the past, we’ve done interesting twists on garland decoration like scarf garland,
and necktie garland.
This year, I wanted to try bandanas. I’ve done many projects using them in the past. They are such a great material to use because they’re colorful and very economical. Some of our most popular bandana projects include:
- DIY bandana pillows
- DIY bandana pillow covers
- Bandana Easter basket liners
- Bandana pumpkins
- Bandana Gift Wrapping
For this Dollar Tree bandana garland decoration, you don’t need anything except the bandanas in the way of supplies. Well, almost nothing else.
Supplies Needed for Dollar Tree Bandana Garland Decoration:
As far as the “how to” goes, not sure how much I really need to tell you.
The process is pretty self-explanatory. You just stuff the bandanas in here and there around the tree.
I WILL say that I think in order to make this work on a REAL tree, you’d have to knot the ends of the bandanas together to make a chain of bandanas, like a traditional garland. Otherwise, the bandanas will likely be too small and fall through the tree branches.
This works great on artificial trees, like the little tabletop trees we use in our kids’ rooms each Christmas. Which, by the way, if you’d like to see all three of their rooms gussied up for Christmas, we had a kids room Christmas decorations tour recently, so check that out!!
As far as garland decoration methodology goes,
In my opinion, the “stuff it in” method works better than the “wrap it around” method. Yes, those are technical terms 😂.
Initially, I rolled the bandana into a long cylindrical shape and tried wrapping it around, like a traditional garland, but that looked almost odd when I tried it on this little tree. So then, I just unwound the bandana and started stuffing it into the tree. That technique ended up giving this the best look, at least to my eyes.
Pin this garland decoration post for later! And if you make one, leave a comment (or better yet, a photo) on the pin! That helps others know whether they want to try this project, too!
