Fill out the Christmas tree with… garland?! Here’s the technique for this holiday hack

Don’t use picks to fill out the Christmas tree this year.

There is an art to Christmas tree decorating. Usually, the picks fill in empty spots between branches. This year, we’re turning to a different decorating piece to fill in the holes – garland!

Michelle Inkley shares how she tucks and twists to fill out the tree with greenery. Any lush strand will do – Michelle has even used spring garland! Just place it between branches, twist into place, and your tree will look fuller than ever.

  • LATE LATE. 2 Dec to talk about the TREE. Cookies and song was before Tree garland. You missed black Fri and Cyber Mon to buy garland. LATE LATE You are over payed if you can not dress right and sit in a chair and you miss the boat on the timely. DO YOUR JOB RIGHT!!! or DO NOT DO IT AT ALL. Jane Reid I would like answers to why BROOK can not do her job and why Studio 5 has gone down hill.

    • Hi Jane! We are in reruns for the holidays. If you watch the show live, you will see a “pre-recorded” note on your screen periodically. Have a happy holiday!
