Looking to spice up your home on the cheap? With this simple project, the humble yogurt cup is all you need for a hefty dose of holiday cheer.

Dreamed up by blogger Monica Shanks of Mon Makes Things, this lovely garland is surprisingly sophisticated — considering it’s made from food packaging — and adds a touch of glow to any room of the house.

After a few coats of paint, yogurt cups begin to resemble bells in this festive garland. Just add some ribbon and string lights, and you’re ready to deck the halls!

The project was featured in All You magazine as part of a challenge to upcycle an everyday object into something fabulous for less than $5.
