Thank you so much for all the wonderful feedback about my "Let It Snow" Christmas Tree for the Michael's Dream Tree Challenge! If you missed the post last week, you can see all of the details here. Today, I am sharing the tutorial for making the Glittered Wood Letter Garland that I used on the tree. It is really easy and you can spell out anything your heart desires!

Step Three: Generously sprinkle glitter onto letter. Shake off access. Apply more glitter glue and glitter to any missed areas.

Step Four: Use hot glue gun to apply glue to the backside of each letter and attach to the string of twine (across the top).
