after seeing oodles of home-made garlands on pinterest and various blogs - I knew it was time to break out the paper punches and sewing machine for some garland fun.
no tutorial here - it's really rather simple - just punch out circles and stars - and sew them together.
I used a variety of white/off white cards and papers - some plain, some textured & some pages from an old encyclopedia that I had on hand! I think having a little variety in the garland (even subtle) makes it more interesting.
I just sewed them together - then hung them over the mirror......super fun, wonderfully inexpensive & it provides instant christmas cheer!
as I mentioned in this post - the yellow has been painted out of the little mirror - and we've gone all white in the accessorizing department in the loungeroom (apart from some blue in the tree decorations)!!!
the room feels so much better - we're all liking the changes. (plus I love christmas time - and all the lights and decorations - so I'm loving this room right now.
I adore sitting here in the evenings - contemplating the world outside. it's so so calming......
reflections of the christmas tree.....which I'll post about tomorrow.....
linking up here this week.....
