An idea a day... #9

Quick Tree Garlands
1. Punch circles out of colored cardstock with a circle punch.
2. Use a very heavy thread to stick them on.
3. Attach circles to the thread with smaller gummed round stickers.
4. Just stick them on randomly... no pattern required.
5. Tie a loop at each end of the thread.
Quick, easy, and colorful!
Hang them from branch to branch.
Up and down and all around. No symmetry here!!

Sing: "Oh, Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree..."
do the Christmas tree dance!!

"Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree.

In the eyes of children, they are all

30 feet tall".

I love all your ideas. Do you perhaps have a mantel idea? I'm completely stumped this year.

That is too cute for words. If your string was heavy enough, you could glue/secure two buttons back to back as well.

Hmmmmmmmm. .. .that gives me an idea. Of course, I'm at work (bah humbug!)

: )

That's a great idea Joni - definitely one to try with the children - now all I need to do is find a cutter! Lucy x

Very pretty indeed, and I do indeed feel better now that you've told me the secret about that picture of your tree. Actually, I'd just been wondering about doing the same myself... I won't tell...!

What an awesome garland--I just love it!

By the way, I made my husband go with me to the office supply store last night and we purchased a rolodex so I can start working on that great organizing idea you shared with us.
