DIY Star Garland | Blogmass 2016

Hello, Lovely People !

Handmade gifts are always well received and I have come up with a DIY that looks amazing , would be a great gift and is super easy to make ! So it's win-win all round ! Why not make one for the whole family ? So today I thought I'd share with you, how to make a DIY star garland. I hope you enjoy it !



What You Need :

  • Air Drying Clay 
  • A Gold Permanent Marker 
  • Rolling Pin 
  • Star Shaped Cookie Cutter 
  • String 
  • Pencil

Step One : Roll out your clay so it's about 0/5 cm thick

Step Two : Cut out four stars with your cookie cutter and poke a whole through two opposite points with a pencil.

Step Three : Leave the clay to dry for twenty-four hours ( Be patient, it's worth it ! )

Step Four : On each star write one letter with your gold pen on each star "N", "O", "E", "L" . If you're worried about slipping up then you can always lightly draw them on with a pencil first !




Step Five : Thread the string through each hole and tie a loop at either end.




TAADAAAAA ! It's really as easy as that ! All that's left to do is wrap it up in some pretty paper to give as a gift or even hang it over your own fire place as part of the Christmas decorations !



What's your favorite thing to make at Christmas time ? If you give this adorable little star garland a go, then I'd love to hear how it goes in the comments !

Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :) 

Lots of love, Marianne xxx
