About 2 weeks ago, I was looking through the Christmas section at Home Decor, which is right next to the Halloween section ;) I saw a pipe cleaner garland decoration, it was so stinking cute! Until I saw the price- $11.98 for a 6ft section of pipe cleaners, NOPE!
I went across the street to Hobby Lobby, bought 3 packs of pipe cleaners each 87¢ = just under $3.00 I recruited my 7y/o, broke some child labor laws, and created a 16ft. crafting project. The Garland project took her a total of about 3 hours, broken up into two weekends, and she is SO happy! She has decided that she’s making another for Christmas for the Tree :D
I totally recommend this project, you can do whatever colors for whatever holiday or celebration! If you can’t tell from the picture, you will need to CUT the pipe cleaners in half. BEND them into a circle. TWIST the ends together. LINK you next pipe cleaner to create a CHAIN. EASY-PEASY!!!
