Vintage Paper Garland Giveaway09 December 2010 | by Jen in Free Stuff
I hope it’s not too late to incorporate a little handmade something into your holiday decorating! Here’s a merry little giveaway just for you…
A few years ago I stumbled upon this vintage 1940s gift wrap in the $1 bin at the flea market. The vendor seemed more than happy to be rid of it and even made a comment like “Well, if you think you can do something with it.” Granted, the paper was quite fragile but the sweet illustrations more than made up for that. I knew immediately what I would make of it but alas, during the rush of the holiday season it never became a priority. But finally I decided to check it off my mental to do list so I wouldn’t have to think about it anymore!
Here it is, a 9′ garland (plus a little extra string at the ends) made from vintage Christmas wrapping, kraft paper, red & white striped candy twine and a dusting of gold glitter. I had so much fun making it, I made 2. One for me and one for a lucky Fabled Needle reader.
All you need to do is leave a comment and tell me what your favorite DIY holiday craft is. It could be anything really: decor, food, clothing, cards, etc. It could be something you’ve made, something you’ve received or something you hope to make! (And like me, it’s taken you a while to get ’round to it.)
Because the season is upon us, this giveaway only goes through Tuesday, December 14th and closes at Midnight PT; open to everyone. I hope you’ll participate – good luck, dears!
