I am now easing back into blogging and wanted to start with a post that I worked on before my break but never got around to sharing. I am looking forward to getting back into the swing of things this new year, but with more balance and less pressure than I felt near the end of last year.
This garland is fairly easy to make - you just need to get enough vintage thread spools. I purchase these any time I find them at yard sales, thrift stores, flea markets, etc. I can never get enough of them and use them for both sewing and repurposing.
What you will need:
(This list contains affiliate links*)
-Several vintage thread spools - I used mainly white with a few pastels, browns and grays thrown in. I also added a few plain wooden ones.
-Natural and colorful wooden beads
-hemp cordcut the length of garland that you desire to make
-Optional: plastic needle
You could always use seasonal colors to make this garland for specific holidays like white, pink and red for Valentine's day! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and that you are enjoying a wonderful 2015 so far!
