A DIY Dixie Cup Garland

I have such fond memories of dixie cups from my days of Sunday school, childhood “picnics” and toothbrush gargling as a kid. And I suppose somewhere down the line, I completely forget they existed… until now.

Blogger Rhi adapted this idea from a Good Housekeeping magazine a few years ago, putting a lovely pastel spin on the project by creating scrapbook paper covers for each cup. After stringing a strand of Christmas lights through the cups, an instant party staple is born!

I love the look and think it would be equally stunning hanging from a fireplace, kid’s bedroom or quiet office corner all year long. So sweet, yes?
