Rainbow Garland Christmas Tree

The cleverness doesn’t stop! First I fell in love with this Christmas tree made out of old books and now I can’t get enough of this rainbow, wool felt garland Christmas tree. Designed in Australia by Down To The Woods and handmade in Nepal using pure wool, this garland can be strung on your blank white wall to give it some much needed holiday cheer.

The 3-meter long “string of joy” is called “whimsy in a jar” because it comes packaged in a jam jar that can be reused. No two strings are identical. Not only can you make a tree with it, you can also hang it over you mantle, windows, chairs, beds, etc. Talk about brightening up any room even past the holidays.
