How to make a two-Item, no glue, metal Curtain Ring Garland for Christmas in 10 minutes or less.
It’s rare to find a quick Christmas craft that you can put together with two items and no glue. But you’ve found such a project right here. So easy, you can probably figure it out just from the photos.
I do have some DIY tips for you, however, to save you time on assembly and display. You can put these curtain ring garlands together very quickly and use them around the house in umpteen different ways. They aren’t fluffy or frilly which makes this a good project choice if you like plain and simple decorations.
If you prefer decorating with florals, try our new homemade Poinsettia Ball, made from four items or less – a foam ball, ribbon, poinsettias and optional hot glue. Or try this fantastic feather and poinsettia Christmas tree, made super fast and simple by the use of a feather boa.
You Will Need:
A pack of metal curtain rings and a supply of small Christmas balls.
You’ll want one ball for each curtain ring.
This part is easy. On each metal ring, you’ll see a hinge and a closing clasp.
Open the ring by holding the left side of the clasp and pushing the right side of the clasp forward (away from you) just a little to release it. Pull each side apart.
Thread the hanger of a Christmas ball onto the metal curtain ring and close the clasp. This completes one round of the garland. Repeat this step with another curtain ring and Christmas ball but, this time, add the second ring to the first round and close the clasp.
Continue this way until you have a garland that is long enough for use as a Christmas decoration. I used 12 curtain rings and 12 Christmas balls and my garland is about 26 inches long. Once I got going, I completed the garland in about 10 minutes.
Curtain Ring Garland Display Tips
Here’s where you get creative with your metal curtain ring garland. Look around. Play with the garland and see what you like best.
Try hanging it in a straight line as I did on the brass sword and copper bedwarmer used in the photos for this project. Adjust the placement of the hinge on the metal curtain rings if some of the Christmas balls aren’t hanging correctly.
Or join the ends to make circle and encircle a candle ring for immediate dramatic effect that catches the candlelight.
You could also make a matching piece and drape it over a lampshade or large vase.
Use a straight garland to hang across the top of a doorway or between door handles on a cupboard or dresser that you don’t open often.
If you hold the garland in the center and let the two sides fall together the effect is a cascade that could take the place of the traditional bow at the bottom of a wreath.
The possibilities are really endless. All from a two-item curtain ring garland that takes ten minutes or less to assemble.
