My gorgeous sister-in-law, Dee, collects gingerbread men at Christmas. As she was hosting Christmas Eve, I decided that my painted gingerbread men would look fabulous on a garland for her.
I picked up the plain 12' garland at Michael's for $1.50. I had the red and white checker material already, and my little men were a mistake made better. So all in all, the entire gift was $1.50. :-)
Not only did Dee LOVE the gift and hang it up right away, but she also genuinely appreciated the thought. It was a pleasure to make it and to give it. :-)
