artful thursday - sparkly garland!!!
here's our artful thursday project for today! can you see it back there???? the black arrows are there to guide your eye...they aren't really in the pretty display!!! :)
dig out those old fashioned shiny bright light reflectors, some bendy wire, little mercury glass balls, and buttons.
punch two holes in each reflector - i used the crop-o-dile because i love it, but a regular paper punch would work, too.
determine the length of your desired garland and cut the wire to that length.
use a button as a stopper.
thread the reflector through the wire, and add another button. these button stoppers will keep the reflectors from slipping.
in between each reflector, i added various mercury glass balls.
you could add all sorts of pretties to this garland. lace, tiny ornaments, ribbons, oooh, even anagram letters spelling out winter or wish or merry! i might have to try that next time.
happy day to you!!!
