This Starbucks Christmas Garland was made with the DIY Starbucks Ornament - go read that post first and then you'll be all caught up! I'll wait! :)
Okay, you're back now? Good!
|DIY Starbucks Ornament|
After making enough Starbucks ornaments for my garland, I then cut the rough edge of braided jute from the edge of a gunny sack. If you don't have gunny sacks, you can buy them really cheap. I got mine at Atwoods.
If you still can't find them, I suppose you could braid the thin just you find at craft stores, or use strips of burlap - but that wouldn't hold up as strong, so it is my suggestion to cut edges of gunny sacks.
After cutting the strip out, I hot glued white ribbon twisted around the burlap edge. This has two purposes. First, it adds some interest for the eye and second, you will tie your ornaments between two glued places so that they won't all fall to the center when you hang the garland up.
See how each brown ribbon is tied so that the white ribbon won't let it slide down to the center?
I think this garland would look great on a wall, and great in a tree, or even with some green garland.
Ahh, the warmth of Starbucks intertwined with lovely Christmas lights.
Makes me want a caramel macchiato.
(Is it weird that since I lived in China, I literally can't think of a caramel macchiato without saying jiāo táng mǎ qí duǒ? Seriously, it is so much more fun to say.)
