paper slice star garland
Partly because I was in the craft zone from my previous art project with paper and partly because I had a lovely driftwood branch stashed in the garage (!) with which I had done nothing at all (drooping head in shame), I made up a nice little star garland to commemorate July 4th in home sweet homemade style.
These cute little chubby stars (inspired by the little collage I framed last weekend) are made from 100% disposable paper sources (junk mail), as are the paper beads adorning the ends.
I borrowed an idea from uber-creative blogger Carolyn at Carolyn’s Homework to decorate the garland string with tiny snippets of fabric scraps.
My original intent was to use another recycleable material to connect the stars together (strips from a cellophane bag), but I am going to have to work on refining that idea. The first attempt was, well, not so great. Cotton string is so much nicer.
Happy July 4th from Cristybella and me! Enjoy a cold drink out on the patio and contemplate the stars 🙂
