As an alternative project to the all-out holiday garland, here's a quickie just perfect for doing with the kiddos.
this post. Tie a loop to the end of some twine, thread it through the bauble, add some pretty beads and tie off the end. Add a ribbon bow up top and you're done. Simple.
These are so quick and easy you could use them to garnish packages or as a pretty way to present a bottle of wine to a host/hostess.
