You may say I’m a dreamer…
But I’m not the only one.
I love this quote.
This week I made a super easy straw garland, (to go with my new, I’m a dreamer print)
that you could use for a beach party…
make a necklace with the kids this holidays,
a wall decoration,
a cool party backdrop,
a funky straw door curtain
(remember those plastic streamers that used to hang in the doors and stop the flys getting inside in summer? yay one of those!)
How to make a Straw Garland
You will need:
Straws, string, scissors and a stick (optional)
Cut the straws into even lengths… (these were from Ikea)
Then thread on a string.
Once threaded to the length you want, tie a knot at the bottom and fray the edges, then make as many lengths as you require.
Hang individually or use a stick and make a wall hanging or Straw Door Curtain the size you require.
As I took the photos for this straw art,
I thought we definitely need to make this into a straw garland door curtain, I think this would look so cool!
I’ve started to add more products to my shop,
just one of my dreams,
to design and make stuff that I love.
This print inspires me,
if I really want something,
I can make it happen,
others before me have…
Here’s another quote I love from an old post about me
…I used to think as I looked out on the Hollywood night – there must be thousands of girls sitting alone like me, dreaming of becoming a movie star. But I’m not going to worry about them. I’m dreaming the hardest! (Marilyn Monroe)
I love to acknowledge achieving dreams and making them into art in our house.
I put my husbands on our wall, see here
to dream bigger,
…..to inspire myself,
that anything I dream and want enough is possible!
What’s your dream? Are you are dreamer like me?
Live with Love,
Care to stay in the loop? I’d love to have you!
