I spent the evening delightfully employed, listening to "The Enchanted April" on Audiobooks, and making this wonderfully FUN but simple and no-measurements-requiring(oh, SO fun!) garland for my dear friend's little girl's 4th birthday party.
She is celebrating in the theme of the Lalaloopsy dolls this year--cute little rag dolls with button eyes. The garland was her mom's idea. I think it's fun that they might be construed as increasing little girls' interests in handicrafts! *smile*
I had so much fun on the "big" garland that I made another, which should be just right to circle on the tabletop around the cake stand.
It was so refreshing to cut tons of strips of fabric without worrying about width or length, and then to tie them on without thinking too hard about symmetry and placement!
Then, at the end, to have something so bright and fun to hang and enjoy while thinking of the fun it will add to a special birthday celebration.
What easy crafts have you enjoyed lately?
