Decorating Your Holiday Windows With Homemade Marshmallow Garland

Charming Marshmallow Holiday Decorating Window Ideas

Hanging Marshmallow Garlands is such a groovy idea, I wish I had thought of it. Word has it that the department store Anthropologie has decorated their holiday windows in this sweet way, but the Kitsch Collector spotted this particular window shown at "Ben's Garden" in Huntington, Long Island.

How Do You Make Marshmallow Garland?

The big question is how do you create "Marshmallow Garland" ? I'm guessing you get yourself a long sewing needle, some fishing wire and lots of marshmallows and some elves to help you string these wonderful window treatments.

Add Some Pizazz To Your Holiday Windows

This is one of those elegant and simple holiday ideas which is great for budget conscious families who may enjoy a group activity. It is also a neat way to add charm to your antique shop or create in store visuals for some great eye candy (no pun intended).
