Summer garland

Happy 4th of July! Can you believe its already the 4th? Today is a big day for us, we have several events happening today, around here our job is to provide treats and food for everyone who is out enjoying today's festivities! So as you read this I am probably making cotton candy or dipping caramel apples! {yum}

That means I may not be watching fireworks tonight, but I can have my own "paper fireworks" garland all summer long!

 This was such a fun home decor piece to make, its essentially a long twine rope with various sized rosettes attached all along it. lots of pretty red and blue papers, buttons, and lacy bits!

All of the rosettes were cut with the Cricut and cemented in place with hot glue, in my opinion hot glue is the only way to assemble these paper star bursts!

I will have these for years to hang and enjoy...... or until the dust takes them over...whatever comes first! :) Until that day arrives I will think of fireworks, sunny days and vintage style Americana!

Have a great Holiday, and as always I wish you nothing but happiness making pretty things!

Beautiful garland! I just updated my Imagine and Gypsy for the first time in about 2 years and re-discovered Ribbons and Rosettes.

Shantaie, this has me drooling! I love banners and garlands and this one is just soooooo pretty. I love the red, white, and blue combo on classic and festive.
