Quote from How to Make Christmas Garland :
You can make your own Christmas garland from twine. Arrange it in a straight line on a flat surface and tie a loop at one end to attach your floral wire to the loop. Just leave the floral wire on the spool to allow you unravel it as needed. This will make sure you won’t end up with a tangled up mess of wire and greenery. Now mix evergreen branches and gather them together at the base with the stems on the bottom. Put the bunch of foliage near the loop end of the twine with the stems pointing toward the opposite end of the twine. Loop floral wire three to four times around the bottom of the branches and make the bunch is as close to the beginning of the wire as possible. Place another bundle along the twine to make it conceal the first bundle. Refrain cutting your floral wire till you finish the garland. How to make Christmas garland then can be continued by tying the evergreen bunches to the twine to make sure the stems point in the stem direction. Attach the foliage as close as possible o avoid gaps. Reach the end of the twine and tie the twine and floral wire together. Leave about 3 to 4 inches of floral wire at the end to allow you place your garland in your desired location. Embellish it with small pinecones, ribbons and ornaments as the last touch.
