the perfect star garland


DIY leather star garlandPiper Jane wanted a sparkle party this year for her fourth birthday (well, actually, she wanted another sprinkle party… and then decided that a sparkle-party-with-lots-sprinkles would work instead).

It’s such a fitting theme- that girl just exudes sparkles.

DIY leather star garlandSo while I edit five hundred pictures, I thought I’d share the leather star garland how to.

how to make a leather star garlandI used the leftover gold leather from making this bag (and still have some more- love it!), and cut out a whole pile of stars (just freehand- I’m telling myself the wonky-ness is charming). Then, I punched holes in the leather stars (two holes in the bigger stars and one hole in the center of the smaller ones) and strung the stars on some gold and white bakers twine that I found in Target’s dollar bin, you know, when I still had a Target nearby. Voila- the perfect star garland for a sparkle party.

ps- We got the leather for the gold bag (and this garland!) at The Leather Hide Store- check them out if you’re looking for a leather source!
