Deck the halls with "Super Cheap Garland from Walmart" fa la la la la la . . . la la la la.
When we first saw this house all I saw was, a spot for a giant Christmas tree and staircase railings begging for garland.
I didn't have a very large budget for garland, I wanted to keep it around $20, so it was either buy one 7 foot section from Michaels, or outfit all of our railings from Walmart. For $2.50 you can buy a 9 foot long very scraggly string of garland. My solution was to take 2 strings of $2.50 garland and twist them together, which made for fuller string of garland for the low low price of $5 :)
It cost us $20 plus tax for all the garland on the staircase.
I used red ribbon and tied it in big bows to hold the garland to the railing, I really loved the look.
Garland and staircases were made for each other!
p.s. I also added a wreath to the window, with a matching red bow!
