While I love Christmas I confess my creative space is surprisingly void of any nod to the Holidays! Well I thought it was time to change that. I wanted to make a a holiday decoration that spoke to my inner creative and was bold against the wall. I confess I love the way it turned out.
Making it was surprisingly simple and you can easily buy whatever letters you wanted. For example I think “Joy” would be perfect for this garland and not take up as much space. Consumer Crafts let me shop their site and I found almost everything I used there. One quick note – when the packages arrived from ConsumerCrafts.com I was really impressed with how well packed everything was. I’m talking things wrapped in bubble wrapped and then put inside a plastic bag – pretty impressive!

To make this Garland you will need the following:
Glue Gun and Glue sticks
Pin with flat head.
Step 1 – Paint the letters
Paint each of the wood letters. For the paint I used I found that two coats looked the best. Let the letters dry
Step 2 – Add some sparkle.
Spray the grapevine wreathes with the glitter spray and allow them to dry
Step 3 – Decorate each letter.
Snip the sprays and pine branches so you have smaller sections Divide between the wreaths and begin to layout the look of each wreath with a letter.
Step 4 – Make it stick.
Once you have everything looking like you want glue it all down with a hot glue gun.
Step 5 – thread them together.
The individual wreaths will have a nice weight to them so to have them hand securely I threaded the ribbon between the vines. Take a flat head pin thread the ribbon onto it. Then thread ribbon through the top of each wreath. Hang up and enjoy!
