To swag garland down a staircase banister or across the mantel, use the same strategy as above. Measure the LENGTH of the banister or the WIDTH of the mantel, then calculate one-and-a-half times that dimension. Example: 6-ft. W mantel x 1.5 = 9 feet of garland.
Also, how do you hang garland around a post? Securely tie fishing wire around the garland to align with the hooks. Tie the other end of the fishing wire around the hooks tightly, so the garland is hanging in front of the mantel in a draping effect. Attach a bow at each hook so the hooks are not visible.
