For Christmas, birthdays or "we made it through the week" Fridays, sometimes certain occasions deserve a little something extra. Take an afternoon to craft one of these really simple but really beautiful garlands, and you'll be ready to make a celebration happen anytime you need.
Above: A twisty garland made of gold paper straws, from Style Me Pretty.
A free-form felt leaf garland from Lindsay Stephenson (which lasts way longer than the fresh green version).
Wooden beads again, this time with neon string, make a super simple garland that would work anywhere, from Curbly.
Cut paper into tiny triangles to make this tree garland. You can even go ombre, like they did here on Julep.
