Give your indoors a customized touch of spring with this inexpensive, Land of Nod knock-off, letter garland. Fed up with the wintery weather still lingering in New England, I was inspired by Land of Nod to brighten up my mantel with some spring décor. If spring won’t grace the outdoors, I might as well transform my home into a budding paradise.
The total cost of my indoor spring fling: $2.50.
Total effort: minimal.
What you need:
- Scrapbook paper
- String or Ribbon for hanging (Land of Nod uses a shoelace)
- Letter Template
- Pen (For tracing the letters onto your scrapbook paper)
- Handheld Hole Punch
- Twine (to wrap around the vase)
- Clear Glue
- Dried flowers
Step 1: Print out the enclosed letter template that I created and cut out the letters that you want to use for your project. Click here to download the letter template.
Step 2: Trace the letter templates onto the scrapbook paper of your choice. Once complete, you can begin cutting out your letters.
Step 3: Place your hole punch tool on each letter in the location where you want your holes to go. Carefully squeeze the tool and release, you should see your hole immediately after you remove the tool from the paper. Note – for the bigger letters, I used 2 holes in order to balance the weight of the letter.
The small flower vases were $1/each at the craft store. To recreate this look, take a bit of twine and wrap it around the neck of the vase; secure it with clear glue.
Using dried flowers (mine were saved from the bouquet my husband got me for Valentine ’s Day), adorn the vase with one or two buds. Use the vase to anchor the letter garland in place on your mantel, dresser or shelf.
And you have a touch of spring color in a saying that suits your decorating theme of the day (name garland, birthday greeting, party banner, etc.). Now recreate for all your special occasions and be the envy of all your friends.
