Well since it is now November, it's time to start decorating for the holidays. Today we are using Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage to make this cute garland. You can actually use the decoupage on anything, it's even dishwasher safe! You can pick some up at your local Michael's or in Plaid's online store. Anyway, I wanted this garland to be able to stay up all the way through Christmas but I wanted to use it now, so I needed it to be not-so-Christmasy yet still festive. You know what I mean? I've been dying to do something with these pine cones for about a month. Casey and I found them on the side of the road in our neighborhood! So to make this garland, you will need:
Martha Stewart Decoupage
Hot Glue Gun
First, cut strips of your fabric with the pinking shears. You could actually just use scissors, I just like the edge created by pinking shears. And it's not going to fray as much although, fraying wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing here!
Mix some fine glitter with the decoupage.
Brush the glittered decoupage onto the fabric. I only did it on one side but you could do both if you'd like.
Let your strips dry. I used clothespins to clip mine to a plant so they'd dry quickly.
And now you have a shimmery fabric!
Tie each strip into a knot onto the yarn.
Hot glue each bow onto a pine cone.
Then hang that baby up!
This project is super super simple but it's so precious! Now, we need to work on the top of our fireplace. It's not really giving a holiday vibe.
