Spring Garland {15 minute craft}

Good Afternoon Friends!

As promised, I am going to share with you how I made the simple garland from my Spring Mantel.

What you’ll need:

Heavier paper, like cardstock

patterned paper or an accent paper

adhesive, a glue stick will work fine

fine point marker, I used a Sharpie

ribbon or twine

clothespins or a hole punch

How I did it…

Cut out rectangles to use as the background.  (If a paper cutter is not available, trace kids flashcards.)  Cut out the letters to spell the word.  I used a different pattern of paper for each letter.  This is a great way to use up scraps!  Glue letters to rectangles.  If desired, draw little lines resembling stitching around each letter and ink edges of paper with a chocolate brown ink pad.  Then, either punch holes in the tops of each rectangle or simply clip each one with a clothespin.

Easy peasy,  cute and Springy…I love the mismatched letters because it reminds me of an old quilt.

I made the “Happy” banner above the Art Buffet exactly the same, but hung it from pom-pom fringe.
