Today's project was inspired by Pinterest. Seems like it's been a while since I've done anything from there. Here are my supplies:
I cut strips of material (the Pinterest directions say to use lengths of ribbon, but I don't have that much ribbon and I have an abundance of fabric).
I had my helper tie the pieces between the lights.
We just did every other space, to leave room for the corresponding color.
Next I cut out the green pieces.
Really so easy, and it looks so awesome around the window!
I did the same thing with the blue and the gingham-looking material for the other window.
And then I did it with the red and white material for a strand of green wired white lights for around the TV.
After cutting out ALL that material, I have two small bruises on my knuckles from the shears. But it was worth it. Also, we can't have all the lights on and the heater going at the same time, because it will blow a fuse. So for the first part of the night, we have the heater going, then when it gets warm enough, we unplug the heater and turn on all the lights!
Who am I, you ask?
In 2006 I had a stroke, and every day my husband encourages me to use my remaining brain cells to the best of my ability. I love to organize, make crafts, and go on adventures (safe ones). I hope that through my blog posts, you will be encouraged to accept and make the best of challenges God throws at your life.
