I usually stick to a Monday, Wednesday, Friday posting schedule, but I have done a few extra projects and signed up for a few more tours this Christmas season so you will be seeing a little more of me. Today, it is all about the Christmas tree. Every year, I do a little something different with our tree. This year, I had it planned out months ago. I have been collecting folding rulers for a long time. I had grown a nice little pile of them and really wanted to come up with a unique way to display them. It wasn’t until we got the Christmas decorations out that the light bulb went off. I will add them to the Christmas tree! We formed the rulers into stars and I stuck them in the tree along with our white porcelain ornaments. When I stepped back and looked at it, it was great, but it needed something else. The DIY Farmhouse Christmas Garland was created.

Garlands are fairly easy to put together and I made this one super easy.
Supplies Needed To Make a DIY Farmhouse Christmas Garland:
- Jute Webbing (I had green on hand, but it comes in red too which would be so pretty in a Christmas tree.)
- Hot Glue/Glue Gun
- Jute Twine
To start the DIY Farmhouse Christmas Garland, measure how long you need it. I skipped this step and had to make two more garlands because I didn’t have enough for the entire tree.
Next, wrap the end of the jute webbing over the twine and hot glue in place.
Decide how long you want each “pennant” of the garland and cut the jute webbing to that size. I did not measure. I eye-balled it. You can’t tell they aren’t perfectly the same size when it is on your tree.
Next, move over on the twine about 4″ (or however close you want them) and start the process all over again. You will do this until you have the desired length of garland.
Once you have all the jute webbing put on the twine, it is time to cut it. I wanted triangles on the ends, but you could make it rounded, leave it straight or whatever else strikes your fancy.
This DIY Farmhouse Christmas Garland could be used for so many things. You could hang it on a mantel, over a picture or add it to a wreath.
I have a huge roll of the jute webbing and twine so I see many more garlands in the future for parties, tablescapes and other holidays. It is a neutral garland so it is versatile.
The DIY Farmhouse Christmas Garland doesn’t take away from the ruler stars. They are a perfect combination for the tree this year.
Like I said earlier, I usually change up the decorations on our Christmas tree each year, but I really like the way this looks. I don’t know if I will change it much next year. But then again, it isn’t next year. A lot can change around here by then.
Do you change your Christmas tree decorations every year?
