18 ft garland, 12" tall styrofoam cone and about 14 straight pins.
I picked this 18 ft garland for $3. The cone has been laying around my craft area for the last 4 years waiting.
Lay the garland across the top of the cone and secure with a straight pin.
Start wrapping and pin the first 3 rows.
Continue wrapping and poke a pin in every 6 rows.
At the bottom put at least 5 straight pins into the last row to hold it in place.
This really did take 5 minutes, and I think it is going to look great with my other decor.
I think I might whip up a few more in different colors!
