DIY Tuesday [Patriotic Firework Garland]

Patriotic Firework GarlandThe Forth of July is right around the corner so I thought I'd make a festive garland to add to my mantel. It seems like forever since I updated my mantel but I'll have a Patriotic one to share soon!

This Patriotic  Firework Garland is easy to make and can be used a few times a year; sweet!

Here's what you'll need:











Materials
Red & White Twine
Blue & White Twine [I got mine from Pick Your Plum- Love them!]
Large Serving Fork
Scissors

Take both colors of twine and place them in the middle of the fork. I used a serving fork so mine had a fabulous spot to hold my twine.
