Mini Charm Garland & a Giveaway!

We shopped and shopped for cute garland to hang in the store but couldn't find a thing.  We were forced to improvise and so Mini Charm Garland was born.  


It takes 1 pack to do a 5 foot string, so it could get pretty expensive but you don't have to make them as full or do as many as we did.  To get started you'll need 120 inches of thread folded in 1/2 and knotted.  Stack 2 pieces wrong sides together and start stringing!  We went diagonal through the center, ran the needle through 4 times and bunched it up a bit.  With the double layer of thread and fabric, nothing moves that you don't want to. 


It's cute, different and the possibilities are endless!  We have ours hanging from ceiling, but this would be a super cute touch on your Christmas tree.  It has a country look due to the prints, I think it would be great out of the one of the modern collections or even an everyday collection and not necessarily Christmas.  Make it your own!

Comment for a chance to win 4 of the Winter Elegance Mini Charms.  
I'll do the drawing Thursday December 12th using random.org.  Good luck!

And the Winner is......Lisa Marie from Kentucky.  Congratulations Lisa Marie!
