10 New and Fun Ways to Repurpose Old Garland

Ten Ways to Repurpose Old Green Garland

Old green garlands are plentiful in my Christmas stash... lots of them are old and don't look so great draping from a doorway. Some are in the upstairs closets under the eaves (I live in a Cape Cod so we have these half closets in the bedrooms upstairs). These old garland cannot be used as garlands anymore. I've got some garlands with faux fruit on them and pine cones. Those are the nicer ones but I also have the cheaper ones that are basically nothing but green fringed things. THESE are the ones I'm talking about in this post. What can we do with them? Well, I've done some research and, amazingly, there are some great things to do with old garlands, green or otherwise.
