Plus, there are so many styles available. Think evergreen branches accented with twinkle lights, faux berries, and even velvet bows. If you’re hosting this year, you may even want to run it along the length of your dining table and flank it with deliciously scented candles. How’s that for festive?

Since they’re faux, you don’t have to toss it when January rolls around. Simply stow it away with the rest of your Christmas decorations and patiently wait until next year.

How do you fluff up fake garland?

The easiest way to add volume to your faux garland is to open up all branches outwardly in the same direction. The more you pull them apart, the more realistic and fuller it will get.
