This DIY post simple foil garland is very easy to make with everyday household items!
I absolutely love this festive time of year and have been collecting decorations over the last ten years. Since we have a set budget for decor the only way I can continue to add to my collection is by making it. I have been having so much fun trying out different garlands. You may remember the pom garland tutorial from last month here and today I am sharing a tinsel (or aluminum foil) garland.
Here is what you will need…
– a large sheet of aluminum foil
– twine or embroidery thread
– wet glue (the craft kind is perfect!)
To make this garland you will need to start cutting 1 1/2 inch circles (I folded the aluminum sheet over several times so I could cut more than once). For my Garland I cut about 200 circles.
Once you have your circles cut begin placing a small dot of glue on a circle and sandwich the twine/thread in between 2 circles.
You will continue to glue circles about 3 inches apart until you have reached the desire length of your Garland. It should look like the picture below.
This Christmas garland is a nice way to start decorating areas in your home if you are not ready to start Christmas decorating yet. It can be used on mirrors, mantels, wreaths, shelves, trees, etc… I hope you enjoy trying this out and once again thanks for stopping by!
