Homemade Christmas Garland {A Tutorial}
Grab a cup of hot cocoa and some scissors and settle in for a long winter's night of crafting! As promised here's the "Homemade Christmas" tutorial. Ice skates, evergreens, mittens and reindeer - all in snowy, glittery white and accented with a ribbon color of your choice. You just might be tempted to leave it up through January! Hope you all enjoy it, and feel free to share photos if you make one of these wintry garlands -or another creative variation of your own.
