LEATHER CHAIN GARLAND BY Stephanie Lee There’s nothing I like better than making my own holiday decorations. Not only does Christmas crafting get me into the festive spirit, it also allows me to experiment with different materials, patterns and colours that I otherwise wouldn’t find in stores! Which is exactly how this chain garland came about. I’ve always wanted to make a garland like this using something other than paper, and the earthy colour and texture of leather seemed like the perfect fit. Best of all, it’s pretty much as easy as putting together the paper version. Win! 20 Click photo to visit Make and Tell for full tutorial
