the garland

I made a garland out of some of the mason jar lids. Let's see about 12 lids down, only uh, 150 or so to This will fit into one of my windows, just have to decide which one.
I used a variety of papers and other materials to fill the lids. Die cuts, vintage Christmas balls, ribbons, etc.
I also used chipboard pieces and sprigs of greenery.
The cheesy glittery letters were perfect. I can't imagine anywhere else I could use them. lol Seriously, they were in a drawer of stuff I have and I think they look fab here.

You'll need patterned and solid paper scraps, vintage Christmas balls, die cuts--I used Sizzix snowflake, holly, ornament and Tim Holtz rosette dies--glittery letters, ribbon, chipboard pieces, brads, any bits of scrap you like. Oh, and mason jar lids. I punched scalloped and plain circles from scrap to use as a base. I flipped some of the lids over and used the back, and nestled some things inside the lids, and left a few without anything, just the bow and ornaments to create some plain links in the garland. I had a lot of fun playing with my scraps and am very pleased with my projects.
