How I use Glade® Winter Collection to create my #BestFeelings this Holiday Season to get me into the #GladeHolidayMood

The holidays start at my front door with my home made door garland.

The holidays start at my front door with my home made door garland.

For as long as I can remember my mom would always make our door adornment for Christmas.  Now that I am a mom I love crafting one for my home as well.  Being a mixed cultural house we always mix things up when it comes to holiday foods and treats but when it comes to decorating I take over to get the whole house and family into the holiday spirit.  I start at my front door where everyone from friends to family are always welcome.  It's that first impression, that first smell you get as you walk into our home and it sets the tone for me, the smell of fresh cut pine! I just love that fresh smell, it brings back memories and welcomes new ones all at the same time.  The hunt for the perfect Christmas tree is where I get my main part for our door garland normally, I always pick up the trimmings that are left from the tree stand when our tree gets it's fresh cut right before coming home.  And I always grab a few extra to decorate around the house, it gets my mind and spirit into the holiday season. Glade® Sparkling Spruce line from the Glade® Winter Collection and especially the candles remind me of just that smell....fresh cut pine trees and all the Holiday season brings with it.   So even after the real pine tree trimming's scent fades, Glade® Winter Collection Sparkling Spruce keeps the holiday scent I adore going. You can find the entire collection at your local Kroger Retailer.

If your looking for a change from the standard round wreath and want to try something different, check out my super easy "How to" below.

Here is what you will need to make my Holiday Garland Door Trimming:

  • Fresh Cut Tree trimmings OR Artificial Tree Branches/ garland (used in this how to)
  • Bows, ornaments, bells, artificial flowers/dried flowers, battery powered twinkle lights whatever you may have on hand
Here I used a 9' artificial garland bundle, & examples of what you may have on hand to use.

Here's how to make this simple door Garland:

  • First you will need Tree trimmings or Artificial garland. 3-5 pieces total
  • Next arrange creating a fan like shape, laying one atop another.
  • Secure tops about 2" down with craft wire and loop to create a hook for hanging. If using artificial the garland already has a loop at the ends.
  • Add desired decorations securing along the way as needed. When using artificial use the garland itself to secure the decorations, it's all made with wire.
  • Hang at eye level and enjoy!

The benefit of using artificial garland for this project is that you can reuse the garland year after year and just change out the decorations according to the theme or color you are going with. This door garland literally took me less than 15 minuets to put together and I used mostly things I already had on hand. So what do you think? Easy right. I would love to hear your feedback if you make one.
