Christmas Bunting Garland : :

Come on in... Yes, crafty folks live here!

Come on in! Crafty folks live here!!

Well, at least I hope this newest new bunting/garland hanging strand of colorful, Christmas-y goodness explains that well, just as you first enter this house.

Christmas Bunting Garland

To make this one, we used some adorable store bought felt, fabrics, yarn and sweater ornaments, bias tape, and Christmas fabrics.

Oh, yes -- more garland!

I recently picked up a triangle template at Joann, which made making up these triangle bunting pieces so quick and easy!

I think this marks the end of garland making for me for the rest of the year! I might have to do a little re-cap, but I do believe that there is a different garland hanging in all but the kitchen, the bathrooms, and our bedroom. This last one, Haila and I made together! Sort of...

Christmas Bunting Garland -- and our crazy birthday girl!

And, now it hangs happily in our hallway.

Haila asked if this little angel could be her's or her or both? Of course, I said yes!
