tinsel

Gorgeous tinsel - and printable tags - as seen on Grey Likes Weddings. Totally obsessed with this color palete.
I’m easily distracted by bright, shiny objects, and tinsel is no exception. Who doesn’t have a sense of 1950s nostalgia when they catch a glimpse of glittery tinsel goodness adorning a Christmas tree, present or wreath? But here’s my question: Why must tinsel only be used around the holiday season? I say let’s make tinsel a year-round embellishment that we incorporate in our party décor  and miscellaneous craft projects. I know you don’t want to put away ALL your Christmas decorations after the holidays (it’s such a sad feeling…) So let’s embrace the tacky and find new, creative ways to use tinsel.  

Fun fact: Wikipedia tells me that tinsel was invented in Germany in the early 1600s and was originally made of shredded silver. Fancy!

Tinsel drink stirrers on Martha Stewart. Would be so much fun for a cocktail party.
