I have begun decorating in preparation for two holiday home tours I am participating in next week.
Since I change my theme every year I try to make seasonal décor that isn’t expensive.
This year I am creating a pastel vintage wonderland and needed a garland for my mantle.
Don’t you just love the Target Dollar Spot?
I found these cute felt snowman for just one dollar. The silver tinsel was from the Spritz party line and was also just $1. I had the sparkle pom poms left over from another project but you can find them at most craft stores for just a few dollars.
I used white upholstery cording that I had in my stash to attach the snowman and poms to with a hot glue gun.
A bit of silver trim was added to the hat. Pom poms make for cute “buttons”.
The entire project took just 10 minutes to make. The hardest part was measuring where to place the poms so that they were even. (But don’t look too closely. :)
I’m pretty happy with my $2 Snowman Garland.
I am also very happy to be featured in the 2016 Country Sampler Christmas Decorating magazine.
My Christmas Treasure Boxes are shown on page 42 and showcased on the table of contents.
What’s making you happy today?
