After sewing a lot of little gingerbread men I didn't need half of them to fill the garland!
Here's the finished article. Excuse the poor picture, hanging it above the mirror to take a photo wasn't the best thing to do!!
The garland was an artificial plant from TK Max, I didn't think it would work at first but after trimming off a few branches and tidying up each end, it has come together nicely.
