Birthday garland

At Christmas I like to make a garland for the house, it’s lovely to bring greenery and light into the house. This year January felt quite grey so I thought it’d be fun to have one for the January birthday we celebrate.

It was quite a simple affair made purely of ivy intertwined with a set of fairly lights.


A green garland wasn’t enough though so I  made an elephant garland with some of the lovely papers that my Daughter has amassed for her crafting. Every elephant has different papers on each side and a different paper for it’s ear.


Pink sequins for eyes! It’s a short crowded garland and I love it so much that it’s still there even now, long after the ivy garland faded. Perhaps I’ll leave it there until Easter and replace it with an Easter tree.
