My Scandinavian Christmas day 15


Day 15 of My Scandinavian Christmas is with....drumroll...me! Check out the other guest contributors to My Scandinavian Christmas here. There are some pretty awesome blogger and projects.

Ok, this holly and ivy balloon garland is not Scandinavian at all, but it's one that I recently did for Hello Bee and it's a super easy Christmas decoration to make for a party or for kids. I modeled it after my fruit balloon DIY. It's pretty much the same concept, but with different shapes.
You will need: balloons, tape, scissors, twine, green paper for leaves, glue gun

Step 1: Blow up some balloons aso they are small enough to group in small clumps as berries.

Step 2: With scotch tape or double-sided stick tape attach a little to the balloon and stick to another. Clump in threes or twos.

Step 3: Cut out holly leaves in proportion to the size of the balloons. Draw or paint yellow veins on the leaves.
Step 4: Tie the groups of berries onto the twine and leave extra twine at the front and back.
Step 5: Glue gun the edges of the leaves to the edge of the balloon and a bit to the twine to secure it in place.
Donzo! That's it! So simple!
