Make every day feel like a celebration by adorning your home with garlands. They add instant color, joy, and festive vibes to your space, and the best part is that you can make them out of almost anything. Artist Twinkie Chan shows you how to create three different styles of garlands: a cheerful pom pom garland that's also a great craft for kids, a beautiful crepe paper leaf garland that introduces you to some basics of floral design and paper flower construction, and a crocheted popcorn garland that you can use year after year. There's something fun for everyone in this class, and garland-making is a fabulous reason to throw a craft party with your friends and family.

Interesting, and well taught. Having projects of different skill levels is nice, especially with the difficulty of the leaf garland.

Twinkie had an easy to follow pace for each project. Also the materials she recommended were great. I would love to see more craft ideas where you can use things you have around the house or are easy to find.
