Where can I put my Halloween garland?

The sky's the limit, folks, and a little creativity goes a long way. While garlands are typically hung over mantels or windows and wrapped around staircases (should space permit), they fit in just about anywhere: over the living room dresser, hanging around an interior doorway, draped over a bookcase or mirror, etc. You could also use your garland for a table accent if you're hosting a spooky celebration.

How do you style a garland?

There's no right or wrong way to style a garland for the spookiest time of the year. You can have it floating over your other Halloween decor buys or leave it hanging above a vase of seasonal florals for a botanical touch. And hey, if it goes over your everyday collection of photos and trinkets, so be it! 

What can I use instead of garlands?

If a garland isn't your thing, string lights provide a similar splash of color and texture as garlands, but these have a glittering and glowing end result!
