Christmas Garland


Living in Florida, its hard to get that Christmas feeling. We don't have snow, or cold weather. To light a fire in the fireplace requires cranking up the a.c. Last year I decided to decorate for Florida and used natural materials I found outside to make this shell garland for my tree. First thing I did was drill holes in the top of all my shells, then gathered my string and some pearls.






fold your string , with the fold being where you want your shell.



push the loop through the hole.




slip the loop over the shell and gently pull tight.




continue adding shells, (and I put pearls on mine using the same method,) until your desired length.
You can use this technique to make a garland using just about anything!
