Garlands add such a festive touch to holidays and special occasions. This simple garland adds beautiful Autumn colors to any family gathering and is so simple and fun to make with little makers!

Start with:

  • Textured Cardboard
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • String
  • Glue 
  • Paper Punch (optional)

Create it!

Step 1: Paint textured cardboard and allow to dry.

Step 2: Cut uniform strips from the textured cardboard. (Cutting along the line makes for fantastic scissors practice!)

Step 3: Place glue in center of one strip and glue another strip to the first. Repeat this until a loose circle is formed. Repeat as many times as you like.

Step 4: Glue string to back or create a hole with a single hole punch and thread the string through to hang for garland.

A fun pop of color that lends a festive touch for a Thanksgiving gathering !
