Okay, so this is such an easy and cheap DIY. We added a little table to Adoration's playroom and that corner just needed something to spruce it up a bit. I knew I wanted to do a garland and I knew I wanted it to be easy. It dawned on me, staring at the colored cupcake liners in the baking section of Target, that they would make a really pretty garland. Now I am sure that this has been done before (as is everything, right?) but it was the first time I had ever thought of it/seen it. I think cupcake liner garlands would make such great party decorations. You can find so many different patterned/colored liners out there or I even like the idea of the simple white and metallic for a grown-up party...or you know...for just because.
What you need:
(I used embroidery thread because it's what I had, but any kind of string would do. )
Fold the cupcake liners in half over the string.
Glue in the middle to hold in place.
Hang it up.
....and you're done!
Have your child watercolor paint white liners....artwork AND a garland!
Dip dye for an ombre effect (cause ombre is so hot right now.)
