how to measure for garland


Hanging garland can be hard, but it doesn’t have to be. We’ve worked with skilled artisans to create an incredibly life-like faux garland, complete with hand-painted stems. Our best tips to decorate your home for the holidays with ease start with our beautiful garland.

how to measure

To determine how many feet of garland it will take to swag your staircase, measure the length of the newel post and railing and multiply the amount by 1.5. If you like an extra full garland (like we’ve shown here) double the amount of garland and intertwine two lengths together for each section before attaching to your railing.

trimming the tree with garland

Use our gold and mango wood beads to create effortless swags around your tree. Use them separately or layered on your tree for contrast.

When determining how much beaded garland to order, a good rule of thumb is to have 10 feet of garland for every foot of your tree height.

For our 9-foot tree, we used just over 90 feet of both our wood and mango beaded trim.
