After making my crepe paper rose topiary, I just wanted to make more so I decided to make a garland to go over my bed. I had some white streamers but I didn’t want them to be too stark white, so I lightly tea stained them. I simply cut my streamers into strips about 2 feet long and dabbed them with tea bags using a pouncing motion. I didn’t want to make them totally tea- stained, just a little, to add a little contrast in the petals and give it just a little of an aged, vintage feel.
After my streamers were dry, I used the same technique as before and this time, I hot glued them to a strip of white tulle. I bought this crown a while back from Hobby Lobby. It was originally $19.99 and I used a 40% off coupon. It reminded me of the crowns I have seen in the Ballard Designs catalog.
I draped the garland over the sides of the crown and tied the ends to the bedposts.
I like the romantic look it gives my bed.
