As to not leave you hanging for too long (no pun intended), here’s the full tutorial for yesterday’s DIY Color Block Ornament Garland from our crafting party with Martha Stewart Living.

Assembling the garland is as simple as stringing the ornament hooks through wired ribbon.. or in our case, felted wool rope.

We offered guests two options so that they could choose either a more sophisticated look with silver wired ribbon or a more playful look with the felted wool rope.

Fair warning though, this bad boy takes a TON of bulbs to make it full.

So stock up beforehand!

(Because even if you have leftover bulbs, you can repurpose them into a unique gift tag.)

How to Make a DIY Ornament Garland

Step 1 — The quickest and easiest way (always good to know, right?) is to loop a set of three bulbs together on an ornament hook.

Step 2And then, twist the hook around your rope or ribbon.

We created this one to have six bulbs for each color.

But you can do as many or as little as you’d like.

Step 3 — Once you’ve grouped one color on the garland, continue with groups of the following until you’ve got it as long as you’d like.

Step 4 — Then, clip the ribbon or rope and knot it at the ends of the bulbs.

Now all you have to do is hang or drape it in place!

  3. Where did the blue, red & yellow ornaments come from? I google Martha Stewart Holiday Frost and found nothing! Did you make them yourself with the paint you mentioned?

  4. Hi Ashley! What is the easiest way to paint the bulbs?? I’m having trouble getting the bulbs painted with out finger prints! Thanks, Emily

    • Just my two cents here, but usually with clear glass bulbs you can pop off the metal hanger part and pour a bit of paint inside, swirl it around until it coats the inside and then pour the extra out? That might help with the finger print issue.

    • Hi Jess! I’m glad you love it! The felted wool rope is actually from Hobby Lobby in the Christmas section. One roll is about $5 :)
