Pick one of these gorgeous garlands (or all three!) to spruce up your space for the holiday.
1. Suit and Tie: Old playing cards and ribbon trimming give this strand homespun appeal. Using playing cards in the suit of hearts, punch two holes in the top of each and thread them onto ribbon. Embellish the garland by tying on short lengths of ribbon.
2. Hearts on a String: A single running stitch sews these lovely hearts together forever. Cut felt hearts (ours are 3 inches across), then use a needle to thread them on embroidery floss one after another, leaving space between.
3. Hugs and Kisses: Paper doilies get snipped and folded for this airy and delicate lace look. To make an X, accordion-fold two same-size doilies. Cinch them together and staple them at the center. For an O, cut out the center of a doily along the edge of its inner circle. Thread the letters onto a length of heavy string.
