Sugar Kissed Garland Tutorial

Today we have a tutorial for a cute little garland
made from pipe cleaners!

We took a quick trip to Hobby Lobby to buy pipe cleaners, we decided on
silver and red for the garland.

We wanted it to be small so I started by folding the pipe cleaner into thirds to measure
where to cut.

I used wire cutters, but I am sure scissors or clippers would also do the job.

To get a uniform circle, I wrapped each little piece around my flashlight.
You can use whatever you like to get the shape and size you want.

I then began joining them just like you do a paper chain, twisting the
ends to secure each piece.

Voila'!  It doesn't take very long and you can make it as long as you want.
With two people working on it, it goes really fast.  We think one to go
around the Christmas tree would be so sweet!

Thank you so much for stopping by today.
We hope you enjoyed our Sugar Kissed tutorial!

Have a magical day!
Twyla and Lindsey

super cute. I think that I will use this in a few months when my house is all dreary and I am looking to dress it up for Valentines. That garland in those colors would be adorable hanging from the chandy with hearts.
Oh.. I am way ahead of myself.
