When I saw a few round tins at my local thrift store - I never imagined that they would spark an idea that would be so well received!
A special thank you to all of you who ordered garlands from my Rusty Robin sale! All orders are completed and you should have heard from me regarding payment details. I hope you will enjoy using this in your home, not only to look festive, but to remind us of the birth of Jesus for whom we celebrate this season of Christmas!
I will accept future orders for the garlands, but I won't be able to complete anymore before Christmas this year. Details will be posted to The Rusty Robin sometime next year.
However, if you are interested in making your own - here's how!
Type up the following in Word or other word processing program:
Oh, come, let us adore Him!
Son of the Most High
Prince of Peace
Glory to God in the highest...
Print on regular white paper.
Use a drinking glass or canning jar (or whatever is the appropriate size for your text) to trace a circle around the words. Cut out.
Use a larger glass or canning jar lid to trace a circle from patterned scrapbook paper. Cut out.
Glue smaller circle onto larger circle with glue stick or double stick tape.
Punch small hole in the top of each larger circle - centering at the top.
Laminate ~ I had this done at Staples and it was about $2 per garland to have the laminating done.
Cut out again, leaving a small edge around the circle. Punch through the same hole at the top of each circle.
Cut a length of ribbon about 52 inches (or to desired length) and create a loop at each end, securing with knots. Tie each circle on to the garland and hang!
