My Mom made her own Christmas garland this year, and a similar wreath to accompany the garland on her mantle. I L-O-V-E it, she thinks it looks too “young” for her 🙂 She had the same opinion about an expensive shower curtain she once purchased for her guest bathroom. Guess who ended up benefiting from that? Me 🙂 The fact that she’s not too crazy about her garland and wreath this year can only mean that my house will be looking quite festive next Christmas! Thanks in advance, Mom! All you need is some Mesh Netted Ribbon & Work Garland.
Here’s a short video clip showing you how to combine your ribbons and tie them off with the garland:
We’re going to add another ribbon this afternoon, some white iridescent ribbon, trim up the sides and adjust the placement then it’ll be done. Quick and easy do it yourself Christmas garland 🙂
My Mom bought her supplies while shopping in Canton, however, I found a website that carries the same supplies and you could definitely check out your local craft stores as well.
We’re not quite sure when the nutcracker collecting thing happened. All we know is she’s collected quite a few and claims that it was by accident and a product of lots of shopping over the years.
