  • Last week, I decorated a few spaces at Kauffman Stadium, home of the Royals.  Some of the spaces were more challenging than others.  The Diamond Club, already has a lot going on, so I needed to get creative on a way to incorporate holiday, without it competing with all of the existing elements.  For one piece of the decor, I decided to create an ornament garland, and varied from their traditional royal blue so that it wouldn’t blend in or stand out.
    I started by using iridescent craft ornaments, filling just the larger bulbs with gold glitter.  Using fishing twine, I strung on one ornament at a time, creating a pattern of larger and smaller bulbs, keeping the larger for the middle of the swags.
    Pull them together tightly as you string, putting one on in each direction {1 up, 1 down, 1 up, 1 down}.
    Continue to desired length, considering the weight capacity of your fishing twine.  I probably wouldn’t do more than 5 feet at a time.
    I wish I had better photos to share, but this piece was created onsite and late into the evening.  I loved the outcome.  This project takes just a little bit of patience and a second set of hands to tie up, but is simple and classic.
