On the shelf in our kitchen we have one sad roll of waxed paper. We've used it for what seems like a million projects now (like this super cool pendant light), but it just never seems to diminish. We're thinking that making this faux-Capiz Shell garland might put a dent in it — it looks just like the real thing!

I recently ran across the crafty stylings of The Stories of A to Z from our friends at Dollar Store Crafts. Although there's many great projects to be found, this faux-capiz shell garland took us by surprise!

It's such a simple project (circles are hot glued to thread) and although it requires a bit of patience due to the repetition of it all, it has an amazing effect on the final look of the tree. We do suggest picking up a circular craft punch to make things a bit easier if you don't already own one.

This is a great craft that can be pulled together for next to nothing and deliver big results for your holiday decorations. The best part is you'll always be able to fix or mend it if something happens, instead of worrying that you'll break a real shell somewhere along the line. Check out the full tutorial over at The Stories of A to Z!
