Old tack items, like bridle bits or horse spurs, make interesting additions for themed holiday decor.

Materials and Tools:

horse supplies (bit, bridle, tack, etc.)
9- to12-foot natural or synthetic garland
Christmas ribbon with wire

Steps:

1. To create western-themed Christmas garland, wrap Christmas ribbon loosely around the garland.

2. Place garland on a mantel, railing or over a doorway.

3. Finish garland by placing barn items gently into garland.

4. You can complement your Western-themed motif by repurposing old family photos in vintage frames to use as Christmas ornaments. Hang them carefully from your Christmas tree using ribbon or arrange them to accent your garland.

Old photos in antique or rustic frames can make great Christmas tree ornaments.
