This is an easy-peasy project that can be done with in 30 minutes. I did it one Wednesday night after class, while watching American Horror Story.
I needed something to dress up my bare mirror in my kitchen and my office decorations. I have a bunch of snow flakes I inherited from my mom and my grandma way back in college, when I first started decorating my own Christmas trees. These hand-me-downs have a lot of mileage on them but I love them none the less. I also have a surplus of yarn from some projects I made for my Christmas tree last year. I got the idea while at work and we were cutting 3-D snowflakes to decorate our team area.
So with my abundance of plastic, glittery snowflakes, and white yarn, I got to work. I cut two pieces of yarn one, long enough to hang as a swag between my kitchen and living room, and one to hang on my mirror in my kitchen.
I had an entire plastic gallon bag filled with these glitter snowflakes. I could probably have made a wreath from them.
I started by finding the center of the string and then I wrapped the string around prongs or through loops. I continued to grab random snowflakes and attach them at different intervals.
Once done I hung up my garland on my mirror.
And then hung up the long strand betwen my kitchen and living room. I think I’m going to keep these up for the winter…or at least until Valentine’s Day. They are festive and wintery.
Here is my garland at my desk at work. Again I think I’m going to keep it up until I decorate for Valentine’s day.
Do you guys decorate for the seasons at home or at work? I’d love to see what you do! Feel free to share below.
