The analytics and photos have spoken and you, dear readers, have claimed this oversized holly and berry garland your favorite Lars holiday project of all time. To celebrate, I’m sharing some additional photos of the project as well as some reader photos of their own re-creations.
The holiday garland
The story goes, every year when we come home for the holidays to visit my parents, we ladies—my sister and mom—like to get down and crafty. Though my mom might be the most creative person on the planet, she no longer finds it amusing to unbox all the Christmas gear year after year. However, if we make paper decorations, all we have to do is recycle it afterward!
This oversized paper holly and berry garland was a project we did a couple of years ago, and I love how it turned out. Any time you make something oversized, it fills the space more and creates more of an impact so you don’t have to worry about the finer details. A lot of readers who made them said they were perfect for their work or church party. Others turned them into a mantlepiece.
These garlands from @EmiGazkell show the diversity of the uses: for home or for an event. Thanks for sharing Emi!
