Garlands… My Decor of Choice

Whatever the holiday may be I do like to decorate, but who has the time to decorate top to bottom for every single holiday of the year. And more importantly WHO has the SPACE to store all that stuff??? Not me! But I manage to decorate for most semi-major holidays with one simple solution, Garlands! I’m slowly building a stash for various holidays, and can keep several in just one little show box! Here’s my Valentine’s Ones:

The big one. This is handmade and about 12 to 15 feet long. I crocheted a ton of little hearts in all sorts of pink, red, and white yarns, then do a crochet chain to hook them all together. Here’s a more detailed shot.

This year to add to my Valentine’s Day collection I made these:

I’ve decided that garlands are easily my go to decor item. And shhhhh don’t tell, but my Thanksgiving one is still hanging in my Dining Room!

Do you have a go-to decor item? I’d love to hear about it!

Super-cute! I never would have thought of making a garland but I love it. Great job! I'm really into holiday/ seasonal garlands now too.
