How to Make a Wall Garland and Light Christmas Tree

Making a Christmas tree for the wall can be done fairly simply using a few basic supplies.

Christmas garlands and lights are colorful ways to create a wall tree. Using garlands with lights already a part of them, makes it even easier. Add some ornaments and a star to make the wall tree even more festive.

Decide on the size of the tree that you want and then figure out the number of garlands needed or the number of strings of lights to complete the size of the tree.

If you look at the video clips from Tara Dennis below, you can see that she meticulously measures out the wall tree design.

These are the perfect tree for curious climbing children or cats.

Just be sure to keep the cats away from the walls and the tree out of the reach of little curious hands.
