Family Craft: Garland

DIY garland is not just popcorn. This is a great way to re-purpose your kids paper art into Holiday decorations!


Toilet paper roll garland. You can paint these before or after cutting. You want to cut open then squish it in half length wise. Cut every quarter to one inch in size. Interlock the chains once painted and glue closed. You can use close pins to hold them together as the glue dries.  Great craft for toddlers.

Punch out garland-tree shaped. I used my distress inks to color and design my paper first. As the ink dries the lines from the sponge on the blending tool. You can stamp a design or background and then use embossing powder. I used gold for the white paper and iridescent for the green and red. Punch out your desired shape.

Stack the punch outs together in groups of 5 and punch holes for the string. Add them in random order and hang on the tree ;-)
