paper bulb garland
I’ve seen several variations of the paper bulb ornament on other creative blogs and I remembered making them in Sunday school when I was little.
As I am coming to realize, the most humble creations always seem to be the most meaningful, maybe especially so at Christmas. So when it came time to replace the autumn colored paper garland in our home with something wintery, the paper bulb was the obvious choice.
I used white printed paper that I had on hand. Some was junk mail and I made the smaller ones from the manual of a cell phone that I’ve never had the inclination to read.
Added a threaded bead dangled at the bottom, ribbon loop on top, and hooked each into a strand of nylon string, alternated with tiny white glass baubles.
In my creative exuberance, I made a few more than I really needed, so no doubt they’ll find a home on the nearest tree or in a window.
