Like many of you, I browse the J.Crew website like a boss—it's a skill that makes my mother beam. As a result of such "talent", my index finger often works the wireless mouse in overdrive as I scroll up and down perusing the New Arrivals. Just recently, I checked out the Home and Gifts section, and I was delighted to see one of my favorite Etsy shops, Makeshop NYC, selling their dainty paper garlands. Great choice, Mickey and Jenna! I suppose this is just another reason we're not-so-secret besties, but I digress.

I originally purchased a green garland from Makeshop a few years ago and wrapped it around a stack of books. Unfortunately, the bright sunlight at Lil' Puna took its toll on the cheerful garland, and I pitched it before we moved. I guess I forgot how much I loved this little detail and seeing the garland on the J.Crew website had me eager to check out Makeshop's amazing color selection.

If you're unsure as to how the garland can be used, hop on over to Makeshop's blog for a handful of whimsical ideas. Go on and unleash your inner creator. Wrap, wear, hang, tie, layer, drape, and adorn the garland for projects, parties, home decor, and more.

Having just read Anna Spiro's book, I ordered a spool of hot pink for a punchy pop of color. 
I haven't decided where it will go just yet, but that's the fun part! 

Which color would you choose, and how would you use it?
Pin It!
