 Project Steps

Step 1. The Tag


Step 2. The Tassel


Step 3. The Beads


*HELPFUL HINT - If you bead holes aren't large enough or not cleaned out use a pair of scissors to enlarge the hole by placing then into the hole and moving the scissors back and forth. This will shave off some of the wood and make the hole larger and smoother.

Step 4


Step 5


Step 6


*HELPFUL HINT - Anytime I am working with wood and vinyl I use my iron to give it more of a hand-painted look.

Step 7


Step 8 - Final Step


*HELPFUL HINT - Dollar Tree make up brushes work great for applying mod podge and for painting. In my opinion they work better than cheap paint brushes. So the next time you are at Dollar Tree pick some of these up!


Complete Candy Cane Garland

I created this garland with the idea of it being used on tiered trays. If you want a larger version you can use larger beads and/or more beads.

This is a great Christmas gift idea for friends, family, co-workers and/or secret Santa gifting.

I hope this video inspires you to add some crafty items to your home decor this Christmas.
