Festive Garland Skirt and a Winner!

On Saturday it was my best friend's Christmas party. Her invitation said there would be the prize for the most festively dressed person was a 5 course meal prepared by my best friend. I wanted to win! Last year I was an elf:

This year I got my inspiration from a candy cane:

First I made my skirt from an old red t shirt. I used the pattern I made from the Super Simple Pencil Skirt. I really should have made a real waist band, but luckily a belt worked. Then I cut strands of garland from the Dollar Tree in half, doubled it again, and glued at the top. I swirled the garland a bit and glued at the bottom. It was quite eye catching (although a little unflattering!) and the best part was, I won!! Yay!

I love the candy cane inspired skirt. I can't wait to give these bracelets to my kids for Christmas and explain to them the meaning and heart behind them.

First of all, you look amazing! Second of all, that skirt is so adorable and festive, I love it! Way better than an ugly sweater. I wish I could think of creative ideas but I think I'll just steal yours ;-)
