Upcycle an Old Garlandwhat you need:
old, unloved silk leaf garland
metallic acrylic paints; I used copper and rust in the Martha Stewart brand
sponge brush; I cut mine in 3rds
Remove the leaves from the garland...
And lightly sponge paint on both sides.
I decided to use my painted leaves for this centerpiece of Fall branches--
do the branches look familiar? for halloween, they were covered in bats
So don't throw out that old, unloved garland... it can be updated! A new look without having to spend too much money-- just the cost of acrylic paint. I like that!
