Great Garlands

Whilst I am on the subject of 'DIY'.. Garlands!

A forgotten craft (..well not by everyone of course),
garlands are a great way to make the ordinary extraordinary.

Make them for a birthday party, a holiday celebration,
a kid's room, your garden gazebo or for your next dinner party..

They can be made by stringing, threading, tieing
or sticking together almost anything.

Cut shapes or letters out of ornamental paper (backed with card),
thread patterned cup cake liners, leaves from the garden,
tie pine cones on a string, fresh flowers (won't keep though..),
feathers, beads, photographs... anything really.
The options are endless and it is a lot of fun to do
- with or without the kids..

Here is a link to a step-by-step guide flower garland project -
