Make Do Mend: Christmas Garland

It is but a 7 days til Christmas! Which gives you plenty of time to rustle up some last minute Christmas garlands for your house OR as a pressie!

I got a little excited about Christmas so made these in October… a tad too soon for Christmas decs!

All you need is:

Butchers Twine

Felt Balls (chuckle)

Cardboard Letters

Needle with a large enough eye

Threader

and … for the sake of your fingers… Pliers

I ordered my butchers twine and felt balls from Ebay and then cut ‘Peace, Joy, Love’ out of cardboard.

Thread the butchers twine through the needle (obvs) and then through the felt, that will be tough and without pliers take some time and perserverence.

I find that a Saturday night with a friend, wine and curry make for productive garland-ing!

Add the letters when you want and hey presto!

Add any words you like and make these as a little pressie for someone spesh this Christmas!

Happy shopping, wrapping, caroling!
