My parental friends tell me that one of their ongoing sources of guilt is throwing away their children’s artwork. Not that they don’t want to keep it, but, you know… quantity + storage room + 835 drawings of Dora the Explorer = a secret garbage bag that only leaves the house after bedtime. A lot of these secret garbage bags are born at the end of the school year, so I thought it might be fun to come up with a way to use those art projects for a new and exciting purpose. Also, who doesn’t love garland?
To be honest here, I decided a couple months ago that I am going to steer away from doing craft projects geared toward kids (there are enough people doing a great job with that on the internet), however, sometimes, an idea will come and I need to starch the itch! When Cindy from Skip to My Lou asked me to guest post, I thought this would be a great project for her site which is kid and adult friendly. I think I started reading Skip to My Lou since before I even had a blog, which seems like it was when dinosaurs still roamed the earth, but really, it was just when Everyone Loves Raymond was still on the air. I know – it’s easy to confuse the two.
Anyway. Right. Garland. Want to make one on your own? Check it out for yourself!
