Sparkle Garland

31 Dec

Add a little sparkle to any event or as a backdrop to a gorgeous New Years Ceremony, this Sparkle Garland is a beautiful DIY option. Since most venues wont allow a permanent bar in place, a good option is to rent pipe and drape to be placed and then drape the garland on that instead. Enjoy this tutorial from Apartment Therapy and add a little sparkle!
