I have been making most of my Christmas decorations myself this year and am loving the personal touch that it gives to our home. I also have found that sometimes the most simple and inexpensive decorations can be the most impactful.
This is very true of the modern paper tree garlands hanging over my fireplace mantel. I simply cut out Christmas trees from black cardstock; they are so modern and graphic in their simplicity. These garlands would also look great hanging over a door, from a branch or even in front of a window. Get all the details in the slideshow above and go make some garlands!
