I heart the beach! We go each summer and I have to admit, its one of my most favorite weeks of the year! We go at the end of summer, so I am all about decorating for summer/beaches until the absolute end of summer! {ahem, craft stores. You can put your Christmas and holiday stuff away. Let’s celebrate summer….while its still SUMMER!!! </rant>}

Beach Garland

DIY Beach Garland using the Minc tool

I used my fun little Minc tool and added colorful foil to spell out the word, ‘Beach’. Then I pinned it to jute string using clothespins. Super simple! I paired it with a fun little felt ball garland.

Ok, so I thought a felt ball garland would be the easiest thing in the world to make. Oh no! Getting that needle through the felt balls was no small feat! lol Thanks to everyone for your tips and suggestions on Instagram! I ended up pushing the end of the needle against a cutting mat to get it all the way through. Worked like a charm!}

Minc craft idea

This is what I started with. I used Heidi Swapp’s striped Jumbo Alphas, the Heidi Swapp Minc tool, and 3 shades of blue and green foil. Adding foil to paper is super easy with the Minc. Its a lot like a laminator! You can see my 15 second Minc video on how it works here.

I hung this garland in my new Craft Room. Aren’t those lights fabulous?! Love them! They were perfect for a garland. Want to see more of my Craft Room makeover? Follow along on Instagram at #CraftaholicCraftRoom.
