Christmas Decoration Idea (1)


I am trying to post a Christmas Decoration Idea each day of this week and I am starting of with this (very easy to make) christmas garland.
All you need is a piece of red felt, a piece of red and white bakers twine (available here) and siccors.
You can find the template for the stars here. On this website you can find many more great templates, ideas and decorations for different occasions by the way.
I used the medium star, traced it on a piece of cardbord and cutted it out. In this way you have a easy to use and reuseable template to trace the figure on your felt.
Now you can cut the stars out of the felt. To attach the stars to the twine, you need to make two small incisions in the top of each star (see picture).

All you have to do now is thread the bakers twine through the stars and ready is your garland.
To make your garland more colourful you can also use various colours of felt.
To make your garland more festive, you (or your kids!) can decorate the stars with sparkle/glitter glue.
