After Halloween was over, I started thinking about my Christmas tree decor. Last year, I bought myself a Martha Stewart lightly flocked tree. I always wanted one, so I was very excited about this purchase. I wanted to add more snow to my tree this year, so what is the best inexpensive snow you can get? Cotton balls!
Today, I'm going to show you how to make a cotton ball garland. It is extremely easy, and you'll get it done in less than an hour.
2-3 Bags of Cotton Ball
Step 1: Insert the thread into the needle.
Step 2: Pierce slightly right in the middle of the cotton ball.
Step 3: Pull the cotton ball through the thread.
Step 4: Continue "sewing" through the cotton ball until you get the garland to the length you wanted. Mine was about 7 feet long. Separate each cotton ball at least an inch apart.
There you have it! Your very own cotton ball garland. You can probably do this with pom poms if you want a colorful Christmas tree.
You can use it for almost anything. Put it on your wall, your fireplace mantle, over your bed, backdrop for a party.... your options are endless.
Let's add it to my tree and see how it turns out.
On top of the garland, I added some more decor, including my Rae Dunn Ornaments. You can find it here.
