Make Do With What You Have!!

This is the craft project I worked on last week - Christmas Tree Garland   I finished last night watching Amazing Race, it's 12 ft. long!!!  In this pic it's only about 2 ft long, lol!!

A close up!

I used left over gingham material I had from the aprons we made last year.  I haven't decided if I want to tea stain it or not - I'll wait until I put it on the tree.  Next I'm working on a new tree skirt made from an old quilt I have will post pics when I get it done.

Today straightening the house & working on laundry, made a Black Forest Cheesecake (for me ) Hubby doesn't like cheesecake so I'm making a Freezer Chocolate Cream Pie for him, plus I have chili in the crockpot for supper.  Well that's all from the mtn. for now, take care & catch ya later.

God Bless,


  1. very cute garland.
    using what I have is my plan at the moment too.

  2. That is such an adorable idea! I might make a gingham birthday banner like that. Thanks!
