I have been in MEGA house cleaning and decorating mode, and since I am trying to limit holiday spending this year I put together a SUPER EASY and cute garland inspired by the lovely Elsie and a photo spread from this month's Martha Stewart Living magazine. This project took about an hour and could easily be embellished more or altered depending on what you have around the house-- but tonight was about squeezing in some late-night craft for instant gratification!
Supplies I Used:
-Martha Stewart magazine spread ( 9 santas! )
-trusty glue stick
-white cardstock (for weight)
-red crochet yarn (I used some Sugar 'n Cream)
-crochet hook ( I used a size 8 to make quick loose loops)
-mini-clothespins (I happened to have some Jolee's Boutique, but these are cute!)
-red pom pom trim
What I Did:
1. Cut out santas!
2. Cut cardstock so that each piece is 3 inches wide and 4.5 inches long
3. Glue santas to cardstock leaving more space on the bottom to mimic the polaroid look
4. Crochet a long chain (mine was made making 150 chains)
5. Tie pom pom trim to chain
6. Hang garland
7. Clip on santas!
I SINCERELY HOPE YOU ENJOYED THIS PROJECT!
Let me know what you make-- love the inspiration and motivation to create!
(I only had 8 mini-clothespins, so I saved my favorite to decorate my hallway!)
