Tinsel Light Garland


Create a simple garland for the holiday season with this Good Thing from Hannah Milman, executive editorial director of crafts at Martha Stewart Living.


  • Tinsel garland cut to three equal lengths: two in silver and one in red (or any two colors)
  • String of holiday lights


  1. Step 1

    Wrap length of silver tinsel around string of lights.

  2. Step 2

    Hold ends of other length of silver tinsel and red tinsel together in one hand, and lighted silver tinsel in the other. Anchor the opposite ends to a doorknob or staircase, or have a friend hold the other ends. Make the garlands even, and then bring all three ends together. Twist to spiral the tinsel around itself.

    I particularly liked the antique silver trays that decorated a store window at one of the specialty stores in high street near where I live. The store window was accessorized with anything silver, including a similar tinsel light garland. Christmas is definitely in the air now.
