Reversible Thanksgiving/Christmas Garland
(Using Old Canning Lids - Recycle, Reuse, Repurpose)

About 5 years ago I shared with you my "Christmas Family Tree Ornaments" created in scrapbook style.  I made this garland in that similar style.  I have so many old canning lids that can no longer be used for preserving my garden produce, so I decided to reinvent them.  I took my scrapbooking supplies and began creating! There is no rule or pattern - just let your imagination soar! (see pictures below to view some details of what I created).

The garland should hang against a flat surface (as seen below), otherwise each letter might flip to the Christmas side and your "Happy Thanksgiving" won't make any sense.

I arranged this garland so that I don't have to remove each letter - all I have to do is turn it around.
