The other day I was pondering how to make a random circle garland. I always inadvertently make patterns, but I thought a random garland would be visually interesting. And after a few mental zigzags I hit upon the idea of making a garland in Morse code.
Did you know that a dash is equal to three dots? Ya learn something new every day.
For our garland I spelled out Springtime, which seemed appropriate. I used:
- a 2 inch circle punch
- a 1 inch circle punch
- various pieces of decorative paper in a springtime color palette
- baker's twine
After figuring out the Morse code for "Springtime," I punched out the circles.
I cut my baker's twine long enough for the fireplace
Then I began gluing using my glue gun (though double sided tape or glue stick would also work). I left a space in between each letter. It took the better part of forever (or at least, it seemed like it), and I spelled out "Springtime" twice to get the length I needed.
And that is it!
I'm kind of fascinated by Morse Code now-- I found this print that would go perfectly in Jeremy's office...
So, what do you think?
