    this is simply spiffy. i was going to comment on the garland that hung with the stars (same thing?), but couldn’t tell if they were cranberries. these look amazing and i can’t believe it only took you 10 minutes (15 on bailey’s, but that would be worth the 5 minute slow-down! 😉 ). now, did i miss how you got these puppies red? i would love to to do this next year. looks very festive and natural. good one!

    Love this! I wouldn’t have thought that anything but hot glue would work so easily to stick those balls to the twine. It looks amazing and you still have finger prints! 15min (Baileys is a given) You double pinky swear?

    “I am not a scientist so if you know, please enlighten me.” LOL… I usually credit that kind of thing to magic.

    You are seriously churning out the holiday crafts. And subsequent posts… unless you are super speedy; the posts must take you longer than the garland!

    I just turned on the “falling snow” in the background of my blog… I can’t tell if it’s delightful or tacky. You know how something that’s a novelty can initially strike you as really appealing, and then later you wonder what you were thinking?

    Wow! This is such a fun looking garland. And good for you for trying different methods WHILE working. Usually, it’s when I finish a project that I look back and say, “Wait a minute, why didn’t I try THAT method?” Your tree looks fab. Brava!

    I love that you have a tree on your front porch! You weren’t kidding… Christmas is super fun at your house. I’ll be lucky to get my fake tree out of the box and some tacky balls hanging on it. This however, has inspired me to make something. I need to make something as sweet and pretty as Alex does! I’ll work on that.

    Love the garland. Handmade anything ALWAYS appeals to me. And I’m quite impressed with your gluing skills. I tried to glue two pieces of paper together yesterday and got it all over me. I literally had to take a bath!!

    I love this! I’m not entirely sure that I still couldn’t screw it up, but I think it’s really fun and willing to give it a try. Plus, I kinda dig the twine all bunched up together, like maybe it could work itself into a cute wreath or table garland or something. Hmmm… This could turn into something dangerous for me.

    It usually takes me a try or two {or three} before I find the easy and quick way to do a craft project. Love these, they are super duper cute! I might give these a shot, thanks for the 411, it really helpful. I think I might put wax paper down to avoid the glue clean up mess afterwards 🙂

I love your comments!
