I recently saw this muslin garland idea at Down to Earth Style and was
impressed by the ease and price to make it.
I tore my muslin into strips that were about 12 inches long, folded them,
and tied them into knots.
Total cost: $8.00
2 yards of muslin from Walmart..................$4.00
Twinkle lights from The Dollar General.........$4.00
For the complete look, I used Dollar Tree wreaths that I took apart and wired
together as a garland. I also had a different type of pine garland that I bought at our local Goodwill.
I stuffed in some pine cones that I bought at Michael's and red berries from
The Dollar Tree....the whole mantle was put together for about $15.
Here's last year's mantle....
Yikes!......I'm not quite feeling the love. That's even the same starter pine garland!
What a difference layering makes!
This year I feel way more natural....using greens, pinecones, muslin, and burlap through my house.
Which one do you like??
