handcrafted flower garlands

6.24.2009
I’m in love with these colorful homemade flower garlands from zakka life, recycled out of old catalogs.  What a perfectly wonderful way to give new life to your junk mail!  I bet they’d make eye catching decor at a party, indoors or out.  See this simple tutorial for how to make them, and get your kids in on it too!
