The top of my fireplace is so dark, so I am always looking for new ways to add a pop of color. I have also been looking for a project to use some of my home-made washi tape on, my May Day Spring Mantle was taking shape!
I have been all about "shopping at home" and just using stuff I already have. It is good for my budget as well as good for the planet! So off I went to see what I could find.
I found some large binder clips and covered those with a pretty purple tape. Then I dug in my collection of fake flowers and made 5 lovely little bouquets. Finally, I reused some old ribbons that came off of gifts that I never throw away. My father in law laughs at me at Christmas because I horde all the used ribbons... but seriously the man always uses the best ribbons when he wraps!
Any who, here is the garland I came up with:
As you can see here, all I did was use the binder clips to attach the ribbons tied to each bouquet. Easy peasy!
