Ric Rac Paper Garlands ~ Boredom Buster!

Do you ever just need to ‘do something’, nothing huge, just something to keep you busy.
Well, that was me Friday night, I wanted needed to do something and , and ended up cutting out a bunch of circles from different coloured card.
Saturday evening I decided to use the circles to make a paper garland, couldn’t let them go to waste!
So grabbing my glue gun, glue stick and some ric rac I ended up with 3 pretty ric rac paper garlands.
Each ‘paper ball’ is made from 2 halves, these halves are made from 2 circles folded in half and glued together.
2 folded dots
I sandwiched the ric rac between 2 halves with some hot glue.

Before I knew it I had 3 pretty paper garlands strung above the fire place, not bad for something which started off as something to keep boredom at bay!

Time for a random question
Why hasn’t the freezer compartment have an alarm like the refrigerator section?
Seems to me that it’s more likely that you will leave the freezer door ajar due to not shutting the drawers properly!
Ahh well, hope you have all had a lovely weekend.
