Garlands Buying Guide

Equally suited for display inside or outside, garland is an almost-essential Christmastime decorating element. Typically draped around doorways, garland can be used in other spots in the home, including banisters, mantels, and wallscapes. Here's buying information to help your garland purchase work well for your house.

Types of Garlands

Types of Garlands

Garlands come in several different types, each of them suited to a different use or decorating style. Garlands can be found lighted as well as real or artificial. Whether a garland is suited for exterior use depends on how it is made, and material differences can help garlands fit in with holiday decor. Assorted shapes also differentiate garlands, as do preassembled types. Review each as you decide which garland works best for your home.

Lighted vs. Unlit

Garlands can be purchased already strung with lights, or they can be unlit. If you are going to use yours outside, you may want to purchase a lit variety to avoid the hassle of adding lights yourself.

Real vs. Artificial

From evergreens to pinecones, garlands can be made from real or artificial materials. Fresh garlands will typically have a shorter life than artificial.

Indoor vs. Outdoor

Before purchasing a garland, you should decide whether you are going to use it inside or outside. Labels will indicate whether the garland is suitable for outdoor use.

Material and Shape

Garlands can be made from a variety of materials and in a range of shapes, including evergreen, plastic, glass, tinsel, pinecones, snowflakes, ribbon, and stockings.

Preassembled

Whether made from real or artificial materials, garlands can be purchased preassembled to save you time. However, some preassembled garlands may be more expensive than those you create yourself.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Once you've decided on the type of garland that best fits your home, you'll have to review purchase considerations. Those include length and diameter, which affect where you can use your garland and how it looks. In addition, you'll need to think about how (and if) you can store your garland from season to season to keep it in its best shape possible.

Length

Most preassembled garlands are at least 9 feet in length; the longer the garland, the more expensive it will be. Garlands that you make yourself can be as short or long as you prefer.

Diameter

Typical garlands are 6-8 inches wide. As with longer garlands, those that get wider in diameter are also more expensive.

Storage

Garlands designed to last from season to season need to be stored in a suitable container that will prevent fading and disintegration.
