Zebra Garland

So I have a long built-in right next to my table in the dining room. I refinished the ugly blue laminate to black stained concrete recently and I was wanting some type of garland to go across it. I already have a berry garland on the table so I decided to do light up garland from a strand of christmas lights that I had left!

I got a couple of different spools of red, black and white ribbon. I also found some zebra print at the Lobby so I used two spools of it as well! This takes A LOT of ribbon so you want to get it on sale. The more wired ribbon you have the better because you can play with it to make the garland look fuller. I cut all of the ribbon to 8" and then just figured out a pattern to tie it on. It takes a while to get it tied on but that is pretty much the hardest part! I love the way it turned out!!!

Live Laugh Love Stackables

These are my live laugh love stackables:

I just used the basic 2x2s and painted on my words with a khaki color. I got the thin ribbon from wally world and I had the little black wire. I just tied it all at the same place and added some little colorful beads that I also got at wally world!

Very easy!

Its been a while!

I am so excited to be back and to be blogging! This was the hardest holiday season that I have ever had! My brother was diagnosed with Leukemia on June 1, 2010 and it didn't take it long to get him down. I tried to visit as much as I could (he lived 120 miles away). We lost him on December 9th, four days before his little boys 3rd birthday. I have not felt like crafting, or posting, or really doing anything. I finally feel like its time to get back up and going and am excited to be back in the blog world! Sorry for my "bad blogger behavior"!!
