On the 6th day of Christmas - DIY project

I've had so much fun this year in our new house
making a ton of Christmas arrangements and decorations!
However, I am not finished with any of them, except my garland for my mantel!
Here's the story:
I love the store Hobby Lobby! I'm in there everyday getting something, the employees think I'm insane!
I saw the garland one day that was absoultely beautiful! I wanted it so bad UNTIL I read the price tag!
$129.99! NO WAY!
So, I bought a plain one and then things to go one it. I had coupons so I got a lot of pretty stuff for great pricces! Mine still doens't look like the original one, but it's beautiful and I love it!

That looks GREAT!!! I think it's more fun and easier just to create your own! Good thing is, if you ever want to change the color scheme, you can, since you already have the basics!

That looks wonderful! I've done this many times with creating my own garland strand since obviously hobby lobby thinks theirs are made of GOLD, sheesh!

Thanks for sharing girl :)

I love it!
I also love Hobby Lobby, but I am not allowed in there. You see hubby says when I go in there I am wasting money. So until I have finished the projects I have started I am not allowed in there. Well he'll let me go in as long as I don't have any paper or plastic money. Really...am I supposed to steal the stuff I want/need!
