I was lucky enough to hear about the garland exchange over at It’s Just Emmy during the registration period. I missed out on the hoop exchange! Anyway, Emmy and her family are raising money for adoption and she was sponsoring this exchange. I was given the name and address of another participant. I made her a garland that was at least 6 feet long and sent if off to her. AND, someone got my name and sent me a garland. Actually, the lovely Cheri Busboom sent me two darling paper garlands that she made. Check them out…
(I snagged that pic off Cheri’s Instagram since I didn’t have a pic of the garlands on my computer) Anyway, are they cute? Mason jars!!! How perfect!!!
Here are some pics of the garlands I made
The fall garland above is the one that I made for my partner. I didn’t get much info so I really struggled with what to make. Finally I decided to go seasonal and make a shabby fall garland. I used several fall fabrics that I cut into strips. Then I tied them on to ribbon that I had cut a little over 6 feet long. I was really happy with how it came out. I hope she is too!
This cute pink one was a donation to Emmy and the adoption fund. She asked the participants if they would be willing to make an extra garland for her to sell to raise additional funds. I sent this one along to her for the cause. I loved all the pinks in this one. I think it would be so cute in a little girl’s room.
I made a couple of Christmas garlands like this a while back. But I can’t remember exactly when I made them and I have searched and searched my blog archives and can’t find a pic of them. Sorry, when I haul out the decorations this year, I will try and remember to take a new pic.
