My daughter was a bit down yesterday because her brother had a couple (very noisy) friends over and her friend couldn't come. So I suggested we do a bit of crafting. I saw this tutorial and knew she would like this project. We had so much fun making these. But after we were done she said, "Mom, the crafting did cheer me up, but next week can I have a friend over??" :)
We tied a little bead at the bottom of each garland to sort of weigh them down.
