TO MAKE: First you willl need a ball of yarn in your desired color. Unravel a strand of yarn that is the length you want for your finished garland and then double it. Cut off a bunch of little 3-inch yarn bits (just approximate — no need to measure), and use to tie square knots along your doubled strands about every 2-3 inches. Trim the knot tails shorter to mimic the barbs on wire.
