I am already in the holiday spirit. I’m playing my Mariah Carey and Merry men Christmas CD’s all day long and I’m ready to put up the holiday decor. This weekend hubby brought out all the Christmas boxes out of the attic for me! YEA!! But now all those boxes are a little overwhelming. So I decided to tackle something every day and take it one project at a time. I am trying a new look for my Christmas porch this year and decorating it with deco mesh garland. I will show you the finished porch in an upcoming post, for now take a look at this easy DIY holiday garland.

Get some decent garland. I always look for garland with at least 2 different types of greenery some berries and pinecones are nice as well. I got this set from Garden Ridge last year after xmas for 50% off!
And now we have 18 foot garland! I attached 2 strings of 100ct white lights at this point.
Then I simply scrunched up the mesh to my desired ‘poofiness’ and yes that’s a technical word! For each poof I simply used a strand of garland to secure the mesh.
