Dollhouse Miniature Christmas Garlands


This week we are continuing our series of dollhouse holiday décor items with two simple garlands.



The first is a simple glitter garland for the tree (or anywhere you want to use it) made with just a few simple materials you probably already have on hand. The string you use can be anything of about the same weight as the one I used. I like the Cro-Sheen string/thread because it is easy to find, cheap, comes in a ton of colors and comes in a fairly large quantity. I have several colors, I just used the first one I grabbed since the color doesn't really matter since you are covering it up with the glitter.

Pick a fairly thin glue for this project since you need to cover the string thoroughly and you only have one shot at it. Also just like any other other glitter project you are going to have glitter everywhere.

After the glue dries the garland will be stiff just gently move it around to soften it just be careful you don't knock off too much glitter.

For the paper chain I like to use quilling paper, it is already cut to 1/8” wide so I only have to cut it into ¾” lengths. This part of the video took me all day to film because gluing all those little rings of paper takes a lot of time and you really need to let the glue at least set up a bit between steps. In the end the chain is shorter than I wanted but I ran out of time. I think it is still really cute and I am happy with it.




So these are just two options for garlands, what can you come up with??
