Now that summer is in full swing have you planned your summer bucket list? Your absolute to-do’s for the summer? I worked on ours this week and put them all up on my giant chalkboard. And then, it needed something special. Like something to make it feel more summery. Like summer garland.
So, I made this summer garland in 5 minutes.
I kind of love any type of garland. Like any. I just want to make and put garland everywhere. Anyone else?
I had some really cute nautical inspired wrapping paper that was simply perfect for this.
It started with wrapping paper cut into half circles. My wrapping paper was double sided so I did larger half circles with one side and smaller half circles for the other side.
After the half circles were cut I hot glued them to some jute.
I ended up with two strands of garland, one of each design, one smaller and one larger.
Then I layered them on the chalkboard and secured it with some regular ol’ tape.
Perfect addition to my bucket list chalkboard, I think.
Now when I’m sitting at my desk working like crazy I can look up and be reminded of all the fun I’m supposed to be having this summer! If that’s not a motivator, I don’t know what is!
Happy summer! I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
