How to make a wooden name garland
I started by painting the letters and alternated the colours. The tester pots I used are perfect as they have little bushes inside them. Once the paint had dried I added spots and lines. Paint pens would have been perfect for doing this but I didn't have any so I used some white paint. I used a cotton bud to help me paint the dots.
Once the letters had dried I threaded the twine through them. The twine I had was quite thin so I doubled it up, this made it easier to hang too!
