You can really play up an outfit for the holidays with just a few craft ideas, huh? I love the scarf made from garland. I can think of so many ways to use garland and clothes that I am sure I could make an entire holiday wardrobe if I wanted. I love that you can adorn any clothes with glittery thread or embroider names in bright colors on hat cuffs and such.
