Christmas Craft Countdown: DIY Burlap Garland

29 Days29 days till Christmas!! Less than a month! YAY!!

The Christmas decorations are slowly being put up around our house! It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas πŸ™‚

We even got our tree up this past weekend.

To me Christmas means craft time!

So, I made a burlap garland for our tree this year. So easy to make! And I love the way it turned out!

To make burlap garland you only need three things:

Burlap, a glue gun and some Christmas lights.

The Burlap roll I used was about 5 inches across, which worked great, I had just enough room to feed the lights through.

Here is what you do:

1.Using your glue gun glue the burlap in half. Just do a little bit at a time that way the glue doesn’t dry before you can stick the sides together. Make sure you leave both ends open!

2. Once you are down gluing leave your garland to dry/set before you feed the lights through.

3. Feed your lights through the glued burlap.

4. Done! That easy πŸ™‚ And its so pretty!!

Here’s how the garland looks on our tree. First ornament is up!

This is your sneak peak, I’ll be sharing the rest of our tree decorating on tomorrow’s Friday Favorites!
