How to make the hanging garland on the shower curtain rod

Instagram user and home decor enthusiast Wendy shared the easiest way to hang a garland along a street in a viral video without having to drill holes! Unsurprisingly, the video received over 1.4 million views. You can do it yourself by following a few simple steps:

  1. Choose a curtain rod that matches that of the doorway and tighten it at the entrance. You can adjust it at chest height to ensure your hands don’t get tired while decorating.
  2. Once the pole is attached to the door, begin draping it with any garland of your choice. For a fuller look, it is recommended to use more than one.
  3. Wrap twinkle lights around the garland and then add your accent ornaments.
  4. After you finish decorating, you can raise the bar to a higher level to perfectly define the door frame.
  5. Turn on the twinkling lights to see the magic come to life.
