Garlands are an easy way to decorate for holidays, like this Shamrock Garland for St. Patrick’s Day. You can make a garland with very basic craft supplies. We most often use paper and yarn to create garlands. This Halloween Garland and Ice Cream Cone Garland are great examples of how easy they are to make and use for decoration.
