I’ve been an absent blogger this week. The hubs and I had a small Portland get-away, and ever since, I haven’t been motivated to write a post.
I’ve started three different posts, but haven’t finished any…..what’s my problem!?
However, I built a tree in my bedroom today (sounds weird, but it’s awesome), and I look forward to showing you all next week.
Anyways, here’s some garland that I made early on in the season and have been sharing when guest posting on other blogs….guess it’s time to share it here!
DIY Sparkle Star Garland
To start, purchased 1 package of these stars (5 stars/package) and 1 package of the word Joy from the Dollar Store.
(They are supposed to be Christmas tree ornaments, but I like to use them everywhere.)
Next, cut a few thin strips of fabric from material. I used some linen I had from another project.
If you wanted to save time, you could even use ribbon.
Start tying the end of the material strips on the ends of the stars.
Since the stars are thin plastic, if you tie the material tight, it will stay tied on.
….and after a few minutes, you will have some sparkly garland.
You could make it long enough to use on a hearth,
…or maybe even your tree.
Not bad for only $2 and 10 minutes!
In light of all the tragedy that has happened today. I hope you hug your loved ones this weekend.
I’ll be praying for all those affected. Such sorrow, around a time that should be so joyous. It truly breaks my heart.
