Primary Colors Christmas Garland

How was the weekend, friends?  We spent the better part of ours staying warm inside because it was cold and rainy.  No complaining here – it gave us the perfect opportunity to create this project I’m sharing today.  Have you ever heard of the band Ok Go?  They did a collaboration with Sesame Street that I stumbled upon when Remy was about a month old, and it’s remained a favorite of ours to this day.  He literally won’t sit still if a show is on – but he will sit in my lap and watch this entire music video, and then re-watch it again.  It’s been my saving grace for fingernail clipping.  There’s no other way I’d get him to sit still!  He just loves it.  Now that he’s closer to the age where he can understand colors I wanted to create something for our Christmas decorations that associates the colors they sing about in the song.  And so came about our Primary Colors Christmas Garland…Maison Everett Blog, primary color garland, DIY garland for christmas tree, DIY garland, primary colorsMaison Everett Blog, primary color garland, DIY garland for christmas tree, DIY garland, primary colorsMaison Everett Blog, primary color garland, DIY garland for christmas tree, DIY garland, primary colorsMaison Everett Blog, primary color garland, DIY garland for christmas tree, DIY garland, primary colorsMaison Everett Blog, primary color garland, DIY garland for christmas tree, DIY garland, primary colorsprimarycolorgarlandblog05The garland can be used on your tree, hung on the walls, in your little one’s room or play space – wherever you decide!  We’ll dress up our Christmas tree with our strands of color once we get it up. In the meantime I have it hanging on a wall, and I happened to capture this cuteness after we were all finished… Maison Everett Blog, primary color garland, DIY garland for christmas tree, DIY garland, primary colorsPrimary Color Christmas Garland:
pom poms (colors of choice)
sewing thread
sewing needle
You can get all the supplies at Hobby Lobby or your local craft store.  Tie the thread to your sewing needle.  Thread each individual pom through its center onto the needle.  I used about 22 poms on my strands, and they’re each about 4 feet long.  Tie a double knot at the end of each strand to prevent poms from coming off.  To keep strand detangled, hang immediately or lay it out flat (or decorate a wall while you wait for your tree!).  And, of course, this post wouldn’t be complete without sharing the inspiration behind it.  Here’s our favorite video about primary colors.  Enjoy!
