things I love – garlands
There is nothing that makes my heart sing quite as much as a homemade garland.
In this pre Christmas advent season, I cannot craft quickly enough to produce a full helping of garland loveliness. Thankfully I have found plenty of garlands that I love all around bloggyland.
Let’s start with this simple but simply adorable pine cone garland by Twig and Thistle —
Next up, this colorful twisted felt holiday garland, courtesy of the purl bee —
Mitten garlands have been on my mind since last winter. They are so stinking cute. The talented blogger at Clover Lane made this pretty example.
Allyson Hill made this winter white mitten garland with the alternating cotton puffs.
I remember my mom making decorations with Christmas candy when I was a young girl, so I was immediately drawn to this gum drop garland featured at Intimate Weddings.
Just recently, Jessica at Two Shades of Pink created this very clever pine cone garland —
And what garlands can be found at my house? Of course I’m bringing out the cute button garland I made last year. Still love it to pieces!
And all those paper beads I’ve been hoarding all year? Easily converted into a pretty tree garland.
I added a touch of sparkle to the strand of beads by tying a few strands of iridescent Easter grass here and there. (Yes, I recycle everything I possibly can, particularly if it is sparkly.)
Thank you for sharing these things I love, things I think we all love.
