~Valentine garland~{a DIY}

Do you want to make the cheapest garland ever?
Ok, head to your local home improvement center and gather your supplies.
You will need twine, or yarn, 
{I got mine at the dollar store}
and a variety of paint chips
in the colors of your choice.
You will also need a glue stick and a circle punch.

Since I am using mine for a little Valentines decor, I got different hues of blush pinks, whites, and creams.
 The next step is to cut out dots using a circle punch.
The one I used is by creative memories and it makes 2 different sized circles.
 Then all you do is use a glue stick to attach them to the twine.
Use 2 circles of the same size, apply glue to both of them, and sandwich them 
on either side of your twine.
Randomly work your way down the length of your twine, alternating colors and sizes. 
This would be really cute if you had a heart punch too.
~ Super easy, super quick, and super cheap~
The whole project cost $1, and I have 400 feet of twine left!

Happy crafting!

  5. Please don't get upset, but we all need to realize that those samples are put out to help customers choose paint, not for our art projects. In a very minor way, it is stealing.

  6. Love this idea! Could use buttons, old jewelry, etc too!

  7. Oooh so pretty! And thrifty, the best combo :)

    xoxo, Tanya
