My name is Erika. I'm in love with making art, collecting old things & chasing after my two kiddos. This blog is a peek into my happy accidents & plots of total world domination.


DIY: Christmas Garland

This Christmas I can't seem to get enough sparkle and of course glitter.. I think the glamour of Christmas has sort of taken over my house.  Every year, the more decorations that I make or buy I always want to add more and then dump more on... pretty soon I am going to have a gaudy Christmas. All I did was cut out the word "Christmas" with felt and then cut out 3 inch width strips of glitter paper.  I glued the letters on the paper.  Then punched holes on the top on each side and ran bakers twine through it... and magic its instant Christmas all over the fire place.  So easy and love it.

Have you been doing an Holiday Projects this year?
