Nothing says Summer like popsicles (or ice blocks if you’re an Aussie!). If you’re having a pool party/backyard barbie/blank wall blues, then this fun popsicle garland is sure to brighten up your space. The secret? Pool noodles!
I’m on a garland kick - i can’t get enough of them! They are such an easy and fun way to decorate any space. This tassel garland is perfect for a little one’s room - pick out your colours from the tons available in your local craft store (even neon, metallics & multicoloured floss!) and follow the directions to make your own.
Does your house need some bling? Then whip up this gemstone garland (in two different designs) and hang them where you need a bit of colour and fun. The ‘wood’ part of this design is balsa wood which is so soft that you can cut it with a Stanley knife. I love both designs butI have to say the one on the right is my favourite. You could even make the pattern in glue and add glitter to make a sparkly design!
As y’all know, my tree is up and I’m full into the Christmas spirit. I was scouring Pintrest for ideas on how to decorate my mantle piece. This is perfect! Though these feathers were cut out using a Silhouette machine (I want one, Santa please pop one under my tree) I will cut mine out by hand. And even better, I can leave this up after Christmas is over!
Duct tape bows - so tiny and cute! I would love to get a present wrapped with a garland like this. If you don’t have a big tree and have trouble finding tiny ornaments for it, this little garland would be perfect for it. And now there are so many different types of duct tape patterns out there you could make it to suit any decor.
Dixie Cup Garland | Hey Gorgeous
Decorating on the cheap can sometimes end up looking cheap. But this sweet garland would be perfect for any space. Using pretty scrapbooking paper you cover dixie cups and place over string lights. Turned on and turned off it will still look beautiful!
Falling Snowflake Garland DIY | Oh Happy Day
Yes, you can wrap presents, decorate rooms, etc with this garland, but how cool is it attached to silver helium balloons?! What a beautiful way to decorate the Christmas table. For Aussies, I know you can get balloons either blown up or you can buy a tank of helium from Spotlight. And then when the balloons deflate, you can dangle the garland from your windows!
Felt Ball Garland | My Sparkle
My posts today are all about decorating the Christmas tree! I honestly cannot wait every year to put up my Christmas tree and we have a kind of tradition - when the Adelaide Christmas Pageant comes on, that’s when you get to put up the tree. And… the pageant is this weekend! Woop! I’m decorating my tree in felt craft this year and I’m totally digging this pom pom garland because I can then use it after Christmas to decorate the house.
Tassel Garland | The Sweetest Occasion
I’ve featured tassel garlands before but up until now I’ve not seen any that feature silver or gold tassels! These are made using mylar (which I’m pretty sure you can buy from party supply stores) This tutorial shows you how to make these tassels, and you will be incredibly surprised at just how easy it is to make - chop, twist, twist!
Fabric Tassle Garland | Prudent Baby
Hallways are so hard to decorate, amirite? Haha! I’ve tried lots of different things but nothing has the pizzaz I want. I was thinking of hanging pictures but… blah. I truly adore this tassle garland, and bonus no sewing! I’m on a no sewing kick tonight. If you’re looking for inspiration colours wise, check out the much coveted Confetti System. Yikes, $130 for something like this?! I do love the pinks & peaches garland, I wonder who I would make the gold tassles?
DIY Anthro Inspired Garland | The Sweetest Occasion
Every few weeks I have a makeover in my lounge room, and with Winter coming up I like to ‘warm up’ my lounge (because it gets super cold) I think I will do pink and brown this year, and this lovely garland will go perfect on my mirror that I will hang above the fireplace. Now I just need to find some more pink & brown crafty things to add! And when I get my act together, I will take some photos and show you the before & afters!
Twisted Felt Garland | Purl Bee
You may remember me saying a while ago about the amount of felt I have (it’s an insane amount. I could quit my day job and open a felt shop) so I’ve been looking for different felt projects to use it all up. I really like this garland but I can see me totally mucking it up. But if I managed to muddle through it, the possibilities are endless - bracelets, necklaces, wrapping around presents, decorating lamp shades…
I Love You Garland | Lovely Indeed!
I like sparkly things, probably like most girly girls! I’m a bit like a bower bird in that way. I know this garland is meant to be for Valentine’s day but I think you could make any words in any colours, maybe ‘dream’ in blue above the bed or ‘eat, drink & be merry’ in the kitchen or dining room?
DIY Ruffle Garland | The Sweetest Occasion
I must admit, I have a slight obsession with ruffles. I love them on anything - clothes, curtains, bedspreads, chips… so coming across this post I thought - of course, why wouldn’t you add ruffles to the back of a chair?! And above doors… and beds…and maybe above the washing machine, the ceiling of my car… everything is better with a ruffle!
p.s. seriously, if I thought people wouldn’t look at me like I was insane, I would add ruffles to the inside of my car!
