Christmas Garland



The kids and I made Christmas Garlands. They are very simple to make. You fold your paper, trace on a design and then cut out. You don't cut a section of the folded edge so that it all stays in one piece. Here's how we made the Christmas Garlands.









Cut several to make a long chain, using tape to keep them together.


Christmas Garlands to take home to mommy :)

  12. Great idea! I ran out of crafts while with my grandsons (because it was so darn cold and we did far more crafting than running around outside!). This would have been an awesome one to do with Bubby. Will have to remember for next time...which means I'll be doing hearts for Valentine's Day with him, most likely. Thanks for the idea. And thank you for linking up.

    Also, if I don't get back here before then (crazy times playing catch up after a week away at this time of year!) I want to wish you and yours a wonderful, blessed, beautiful Christmas! Holiday hugs to you!
