My ol' buddy Nester is linking up garlands today on her bloggy blog blog. She taught us how to make The Most Wonderful Christmas Garland ever. Here are my garlands. If you are wanting to make one and need more inspiration hop on over to her blog for some fun.
We do not have a fireplace so I decorated the tops of my armoires. On this first picture, I intertwined white lights into grapevine and put in large Christmas balls.
This one just has lots of glittery stuff in it, and some white bally things which I loved. They were little wreaths from the Dollar Tree I cut in half. I got the glittery stuff and the balls from a nice shop in town after Christmas. The last 3 or 4 years, I've just asked Shane for $$$ to shop the sales after Christmas.
Fun Fact: Our first year of marriage I decorated our garland and our Christmas tree with citrus fruit slices. Lemons, Limes, & Oranges tied with Raffia. I wanted to top the tree with a Pineapple but couldn't make it sit still without my help.
