    Yes I find the hat so fetching.

  • Wow, this will be a great idea to put on a party and it can be put to a party theme too.

    Recycled paper “Popcorn” garland is so cute. This is nice for any occasion like birthdays and I think it can also be a Christmas decoration. What materials are you using in making this one?

  • Vanessa Londono

    These were made from recycled card stock. I would use colorful catalogs and junk mail to make some. I think the key is to spray a light coat of sealer so you can use them again and again.
