Alice in Wonderland DIY Christmas Garland

Alice in Wonderland Christmas Series: Part 3 of 7
 Part 1  Part 2

This week, we had the idea of crafting a garland for our tree to incorporate all the characters from Alice in Wonderland.

We started with making some character tags out of paper. We used the Wonderland stamp set and distress markers for the characters. Distress ink was used to age them. For some contrast, we aged some playing cards that referred to the Queen of Hearts' armored guardians. 

To create the vintage look on the playing cards we aged them with distress ink.

To construct the actual garland for the tags and cards to hang on, we used a string of white pearls, and mini-wooden clothespins. We spray painted the pins gold for a more majestic look.

This is the finished garland. It will go all around the tree and tie together all the different elements of the theme. 

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for the next post!
