(Jan. 18, 2014) After Christmas was done we decided to keep one of the small trees out and decorate it according to he different holidays or seasons going on. Our first holiday after Christmas is Valentine’s Day! Our second craft for our tree is a garland, I wanted something simple Nico could pretty much do on his own if set up.
I made him choose between, long, square and round beads and we set out to thread it all. I had pre-cut a yarn length and tied a little piece of pipe cleaner at the end but the beads’ hole was to small so we got a big needle instead. We figured if we did a 3 straw pieces and 1 bead pattern should get us just enough beads to fill the length we needed.
That was all we had to do and done we were.
If you don’t have a tree you can still make it and hang it to decorate door/window frames, banisters or just your walls
We’d love to see your version and where you decorate with it, so please share back!
If you do this, we’d LOVE to see a photo of it. Email it to us or post it on our Facebook page. Don’t forget to also follow us on Pinterest and our “Around the World in 12 Dishes” series also has its own Pinterest boards for each country. We’d love to do a Facebook album, a Pinterest board and a page of your creations
