Try this unique DIY Easter garland using tassels and floral stems for a global boho style perfect for mantels, bar carts, and shelves.
It can be hard for a DIY blogger to share original ideas with so many great resources for inspiration already on the web! I strive to come up with unique ways to decorate for the holidays and think outside the box when it comes to interior design. This is why I love partnering with Stephanie from Casa Watkins Living because I know she feels the same.
DIY Easter Garland with Flowers and Tassels
Welcome to Day Six of A Very Global Easter Series where Casa Watkins Living and I are sharing globally-inspired Easter decorating ideas, DIYs, and printables. Here are my favorite tips for creating a DIY spring or Easter garland.
Like most projects, I try to reuse craft materials and decor I already have at home. Especially since I make something new every season and holiday and don’t want to end up accumulating too many things.
I approach a new DIY in a couple of different ways. One, I already have an idea in my head and dig through crafting bins to find materials I can use for said idea. FYI, I limit myself on how much bins and decor I can keep to one small closet! 🙂
Or two, I only have a vague visualization of what I want to create so I look online for ideas I can put my own unique twist on. I also will take something right off a perfectly styled shelf to turn into something new!
How to make easter garland with unique materials.
- Step one: Start with a long piece of material. It can be traditional green garland like eucalyptus or other spring variety, a piece of long-thick trim with pom-poms, tassels, or fringe, or narrow piece of fabric like a lightweight scarf.
- Step two: Tuck in floral pieces and accents. I usually have a nice collection of floral and greenery pieces and from dollar bins or taken apart from older wreaths, garlands, and arrangements.
- Tip one: Group colors in different ways to reflect your decorating style. I love the impact using all of one color family or only warm or cool colors has; tone on tone. It can be bold or soft! Mix all the colors for an eclectic accent to traditional or farmhouse style.
- Tip two: Hang somewhere unusual. Drape your DIY spring/easter garland over a piece of focal art, a hallway opening, open shelf, hanging light fixture, or piece of furniture like a bar cart.
It is so fun to turn crafting materials into seasonal decor. What do you have that you can use for easter garland?
