The lightweight balls on this garland will be left unknotted (except at each end) on coffee-dyed twine, so you can position them as you see fit. They're easy to slide and they stay where you put them. If you space them about 6" apart, they'll evenly fill the six-foot string. I covered each of these balls by hand, so each one is unique. Yours will be very similar to the one shown.
* 12 paper-covered balls
* Each ball 1" in diameter
* Total string length (knot to knot) of 6 feet
* Strung on naturally coffee-dyed cotton twine
* Extra string and loop on each end for hanging
* Eco-friendly, made from recycled newspaper and book paper
**CARE OF YOUR GARLAND**
I've sprayed each ball with a moisture-resistant, UV-protective, acrylic sealant, but bottom-line, this garland is made with paper and paper+water=bad news. That being said, I left mine out in a severe thunderstorm and it looks none the worse for wear, so don't stress out too much. Also, though this garland makes great nursery decor, please display it out of reach of small children.
**PACKAGING AND SHIPMENT**
This garland comes packaged in a clear plastic sleeve, with a Palimpsestic label. On request, I can ship in a string-wrapped gift box with shredded paper fill. Just specify "Gift Box" in the Notes to Seller when you check out. All garlands are shipped via USPS within 3-5 days.
If you need a longer length. different color options, or more strands than I have listed, let me know. There's a lot I can do to make this decoration just right for you, so please don't hesitate to convo me using the "Contact" link on the right.
**A NOTE ABOUT MY BOOKS**
I usually rely on the serendipity of garage sales, thrift stores, and library sales to bring me books. Occasionally, when I'm looking for a specific title, I purchase the lowest-graded condition copy available from a conglomeration of online booksellers. I never use valuable, or rare books in my work, but I do look for copies with evidence of a previous life in a library or well-read personal collection.
